Please note that the coordinates in this article need fixing as:

The coordinates in the article point to Toronto International Airport, Toronto, Ontario. I have no information for the location actually indicated in the article. It's supposed to be somewhere on the Bras d'Ore Lake, located in Nova Scotia.

Removed coordinates from article, as the article is about an aircraft, not a location. BrainMarble (talk) 19:25, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


I have changed to statement that the silver dart was a U.S plane to canadian/u.s. to be nice. It was a Canadian team. See the make up of the ASA. The link is provided in the article. Bell being Scotish born is claimed by both Canada & the US as the inventor of the telephone. Bell is buried in Cape Breton Canada. He went to Boston for economic reasons. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:10, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

If it was designed and built in the United States, it is an American aircraft, regardless of the nationality of its designer. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 23:37, 23 February 2012 (UTC).


Incorporating different date styles is inconsistent and if the d-m-y is already prevalent, changing to ISO dating is problematic with any viewer/reader who does not have preferences set. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 23:10, 23 February 2012 (UTC).

On This Day[edit]

"1909 – The Silver Dart (pictured) was flown off the ice of Bras d'Or Lake on Cape Breton Island, making it the first controlled powered flight in Canada and the British Empire."

I have doubts about the British Empire claim. Canada, sure, but even without the possibilities of Richard Pearse in New Zealand, there's the Cody plane British_Army_Aeroplane_No_1 from 1907/8 in Great Britain, which is surely part of the Empire.Nickpheas (talk) 10:35, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
