Picking up from where the part I DVD left off, in 1994, Paul Hakwins and his colleagues took over the Terrace-based Bristol Freighter operation from their defunct employer, Trans-Provincial Airlines.
The majority Hawkair’s work involved hauling between Bronson Creek’s gravel airstrip and Wrangell in support of the Snipe Mine.
In addition to Bronson Creek action, this DVD also includes very interesting footage from the Mule Creek job during the summer of 1995, Bristol Freighter TPA’s performance at the 1995 Terrace airshow, and Bristol Freighter DFC’s UK performance at Heathrow’s 50th anniversary flypast.

From 1989 until 1999, the wilds of Northwestern British Columbia was the setting for the worlds last working Bristol Freighter operation. Bristol Freighter Engineer Paul Hawkins had the good fortune of being able to extensively film Bristol Freighters C-FDFC and C-FTPA on the job with Terrace based Trans-Provincial Airlines.
In this DVD, we get a first hand look at the rigours of working the fifty year old Bristols between their Bronson Creek base camp and Wrangell in harsh winter conditions that often defied man, muscle and machine.
