1939: Weather delayed 2 crown witnesses from appearing at a manslaughter
case before the Manitoba Supreme Court. A heavy rainstorm forced their plane
down on Lount Lake, near Kenora, ON. On 5 occasions over 3 days they tried
to take off, only to be forced down by poor visibility and incessant rains.
Their chief worry was enough cigarettes and fuel. In the end, they made it
before the grand jury.

tragedy.
