NWT Air Boeing 737-248C C-FNVT was filmed over Yellowknife from Buffalo Airways' Piper Navajo flown by Marc Mazdak, and it sounds like Joe McBryan's son Mickey was along with us helping out. This Boeing had been recently acquired from Aer Lingus, and was conducting initial rides for pilots, so we took advantage of the opportunity to do some air-to-air photo work. I also had my Hi-8 video camera with me and shot this very poor quality footage. Better than nothing I suppose.
Reeve Aleutian Airways was the oldest airline in Alaska, founded by Alaskan aviation pioneer Robert C. Reeve in 1932. Reeve’s niche operation focused service on the remote Aleutian island chain, and the Reeve fleet was comprised of two Boeing 727-100 combis, and three immaculate Lockheed L188 Electras. In December, 1999, Reeve Aleutian Airways ceased operations so ending the final chapter of passenger Electra operations. This AirlineHobby.com DVD allows us to join airline videographer Henry Tenby on March 2, 1996, aboard the all-passenger configured N1968R from Anchorage to St. Paul Island in the Aleutians, under the command of Captain Larry Williamson. Then in August, 1996, we return to Alaska with to sample a few more Reeve Electra flights.
