Ice Pilots NWT

Documentary
English

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.
