"Ford (Canada) gave us $20 for every test drive that we held on a specific day. We raised $2,560 through that and through other things, such as bake sales and internal donations, we raised just under $5,000," said Litzenberger. "We were able to fill 53 backpacks. We did one for every Grade 1 through 6. The idea is to provide proper learning tools to all students in those levels, so they all have the same chance to succeed."

The aircraft involved was a Cesna 180 float plane. The plane was travelling from Shoal Lake, Man., with a final destination of Sherwood Park, Alta. The plane had two scheduled stops for refuelling, the first one in Prince Albert and the second was at Pasatchaw Lake, northwest of Lloydminster. The plane had just refuelled and was attempting to take off. The wind had calmed down, making it difficult for the pilot to get the plane off the water. On the third attempt the plane lifted off but the wind died down and the plane came down at an angle and caught the wing on the water, causing the plane to cartwheel and land upside down on the water. Both the pilot and passenger were able to get out of the plane and swim to shore. Neither the pilot nor the passenger were injured in the crash. Both were checked over by ambulance personnel and released. The crash was referred to the Transport Safety Board for their follow up.
