NWT Air Lockheed Hercules C-GHPW DVD http://henrytenby.com/DVDs/Hercdvd.html In the Fall of 1993, an isolated gravel airstrip 160 air miles north of Yellowknife named Salamida was the scene of a massive, two million pound airlift. This set Canada’s Northwest Territories on course to becoming a major world producer of diamonds. At the time, aviation videographer Henry Tenby was employed by NWT Air, and he video documented the Salamida airlift activities of the company’s Lockheed L100-30 Hercules C-GHPW. The Herc was tasked with hauling heavy, over-sized mining equipment between Yellowknife and Salamida in support of the nearby Koala mine site in an airlift operation which spanned several months. This DVD features fabulous Herc flightdeck footage, and plenty of gravel strip landing, taxi, unloading, and take-off Herc action, all filmed runway-side on location at Salamida. There’s also footage of the Twin Otters and DC-4 aircraft that served in this airlift, as well as an exclusive air-to-air photo session with the Herc, and a special air-to-air on Helifor’s Chinook to the Koala mine site. A special thanks goes out to NWT Air’s Herc crew for making this unique and historic DVD possible. Herc fans will love this DVD.
