Twenty years before Ice Pilots became a realty show hit, aviation videographer Henry Tenby was video documenting the vibrant Yellowknife aviation scene in the mid 1990s while employed by local airline NWT Air.
Plenty of footage filmed on the main Yellowknife apron features Canadian North and NWT Air Boeing 737-200s and Bradley/First Air HS748s. You'll witness passengers boarding, cargo handling, engine starts, taxi and runway action with superior noise qualities. In Old Town Yellowknife there's extensive footage of Air Tindi Twin Otters, Turbine Otters and Beavers on wheels, skis and floats.

In the mid 90s airline display model collector Henry Tenby paid a number of visits to Brian Austria-Tompkins at his Executive Display Models showroom at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel at Heathrow airport.
This 4 minute video gives a detailed view of the goodies in the shop circa 1994. The two RAF Blackburn Beverley models are superb. As are the 1/72 scale models of the Canadian Pacific DC-6, PIA Connie, TAR CL-44, and Monarch Britannia.
And I really love the 1/100th scale Cathay Pacific CV880 hanging on the wall. It is an accurate and lovely period model. I have no idea who made that model but would certainly like to know.
At the end of the clip, the late Brian Austria-Tomkins appears at his desk prepping a 1/72 scale British Midland Boeing 707 for a customer. All great memories, which I am glad I had the foresight to film my visit. Fabulous models to marvel at.
What an amazing business Brian ran, as it serviced demanding collectors from all over the world, with a quality that is pretty much un-matched to this very day. It is a shame Brian is no longer with us, and this video is dedicated to him.
