Ice Pilots NWT Print E-mail

Ice Pilots NWTIce Pilots NWT has had three successful seasons on Canada's History Television channel.  And fans are looking forwardto season 4 this fall. The reality series tells the story of Buffalo Airways, an airline based in the Northwest Territories. Buffalo is renowned for its fleet of classic rotary engine planes, and for their ability to deliver the goods to many small communities in northern Canada. Video of full episodes of the show is available on-line at the History Television website.

Ice Pilots/Buffalo Airways fans might want to check out the new book about the McBryan family and their airline.  It is called "The Ice Pilots: Flying with the Mavericks of the Great White North."  It is written by former Up Here magazine editor Michael Vlessides. It is published in Canada by Douglas and McIntyre.  And you know these guys are big international stars... the Ice Pilots roller coaster is now open at Legoland in Denmark!

 

1944 Curtiss-Wright C46AIqaluit resident Ron Wassink managed to catch the crew of Buffalo's Curtiss-Wright C46a C-GTXW when they were in Iqaluit in March, 2011.  They ended up here for a couple of days due to weather, while trying to deliver a generator to Qikiqtarjuaq.   Ron's blog features some great photos and information about Iqaluit.
