Definitely an interesting stop on your tour of Churchill and Hudson's Bay. While one is driving the Churchill Coastal Road it is one of the main stops (there isn't too far you can go from Churchill). You won't spend hours here and will want to...More

Alex took us snowshoeing to view Miss Piggy, an old cargo plane that crashed. It was full of "junk food", thus the name. We snow shoed for about 1.5 mile to the plane and back. A must see in Churchill. Brrrrrrr

This plane wreck used to be covered with graffiti but in summer 2017, it was painted by an artist as part of the Seawalls Churchill project. Certainly worth driving by for a photo. It's not a macabre scene -- everyone onboard survived the crash.

On our town tour we stopped here and got the full story. Amazing that all aboard survived. Great quirky picture.

We stopped by on our way to the airport. Funny. Not a lot to see but it could be a great place to spot your last polar bear before flying out of Churchill.

This wreck is adjacent to the shoreline and among the rocks. Our driver gave us the interesting story of the event and fortunately all people in the plane survived. A good photo stop on the town tour of Churchill.
