Owned by NWT aviation entrepreneur Joe McBryan, Buffalo Airways operates an impressive fleet of cargo DC4s, DC3s, Curtis C46 Commandos, and firefighter PBY Cansos. The Douglas and Curtis propliners earn their keep hauling cargo from the Yellowknife base to remote communities and mining camps across Canada’s Arctic.In this propliner DVD celibration by AirlineHobby.com DVDs, we join airline videographer Henry Tenby aboard Buffalo’s DC3 and DC4 aircraft as they earn their keep doing what they know best: hauling cargo in some of the harshest conditions on the planet, under the command of some of the finest pilots to be found anywhere! We also take you along for several air-to-air photo sorties … but you’ll need a seatbelt as this kind of work is not for the faint of heart!
