Buffalo Airways’ extraordinary fleet of vintage aircraft are the same planes that once flew the Berlin Airlift and ferried wartime supplies over the Himalayas. Piloting the big, old piston-pounders – DC-3s, DC-4s and C-46s – presents challenges unlike any on Earth. There are arctic gales and perilous landings on unlit airstrips – all easy compared to staying on cranky owner “Buffalo Joe” McBryan’s good side.
Now, as the unorthodox airline copes with new planes and management, some favourite faces abandon ship and a batch of hopefuls struggles to earn its wings.
