Lucky Beaver

More information on the Beaver(s) here.

As the website notes, "With the United States firmly involved in World War II, local radio station KXL sold over $300,000 in war bonds in 1943 to fund the building of a bomber for the war that would be dubbed "The Lucky Beaver." Concealed in this is part of what we are interested in addressing with this project; "Lucky Beaver" moves uneasily around the logging history of the region, the sex industry, a baseball team, and a bomber, all at once.
Like a flag waving in the wind.
