The Lark of Duluth Replica
Duluth Aviation Institute's The Lark of Duluth Benoist Flying Boat replica will be on exhibit indoors at the Duluth International Airport this December and January to celebrate the centennial of commercial aviation. The exhibit, in cooperation with the Duluth Airport Authority, is free and open to the public in the baggage claim area. January 1, 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the world's first airline, St. Petersburg Tampa Airboat Line. The Lark of Duluth flew the inaugural flight and became the world's first "airliner". The replica was built over the last 5 years in preparation for the centennial and to document Duluth's contributions to this important era in aviation history.
