The first military demonstration of aircraft flight in Canada was given at Petawawa Camp in August 1909, by J.A.D. McCurdy and F.W. Baldwin, with the assistance of the Royal Canadian Engineers. On the morning of 2 August, they made three successful flights in the Silver Dart. This aircraft was destroyed in landing after the fourth flight. Further flights were made in the Baddeck No. 1 on 12 and 13 August. The tests ended on 13 August, after this aircraft was damaged.
