Great Arctic Air Adventure Print E-mail

 

Great Arctic Air AdventureBack in 2008, The Great Arctic Air Adventure completed a circumnavigation of Canada, which included a trip to the North Magnetic Pole,  by float plane.  That’s not something you see up here everyday… visit their site for photos, videos and more. The trip took off from the west Coast, travelled through the Yukon and Northwest Territories, and visited a number of Nunavut communties, including Cambridge Bay, Coral Harbour and Resolute Bay before returning south via the Nunavik region of Northern Quebec. The float equipped deHavilland Beaver would have reminded some of the older arctic residents of the kind of planes that found their way north in the 1940s to 1960s.

Now, their adventure has been documented in a TV special airing on PBS.  Details, including the video trailer, are available here.
