Post subject: Interesting TV Show - 'Ice Pilots'

Here in the States it's on National Geographic Channel. It is about Buffalo Airways mainly in Yellow Knife Canada. They Fly DC-3s, DC-4s, L-188 Electras, CL-215 Water Bombers and C-46 Commandos!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked

I didn't even know there were any C-46s still flying The show has been interesting, following the people and the airplanes. I'm watching an episode now where they are delivering two CL-215s from Yellowknife to Turkey. It's interesting including an IFE due to an engine issue.

I've caught the show a few times and am always floored by how GORGEOUS the Curtiss C-46 Commando is in flight. There's a polished bare-metal one at the Dulles Smithsonian not far from where I live, but the green & white livery of the one in this series really accentuates the lines of the airplane. Makes a good show even more fun to watch.

And Bushy saw it first! Smile

LOL Slow!

It's easy to get caught up with Ice Pilots and who doesn't like Prop planes and especially WWII planes? Wink
