Additional Details:
During the winter months when the Straits of Mackinac are frozen over, there are several methods used; dog sled, and often motor driven sleds, but most usually an airplane equipped with skis. Sometimes operating from Mackinaw City and sometimes from St. Ignace, the plane carries mail and supplies as well as passengers. The plane takes off and lands on the ice.
