Saw this on Netflix and got hooked! It's about Buffalo Airways up in Yellow Knife, Northwest Territories, Canada. They fly piston and turbo prop planes in Arctic conditions. Great views of C-46, DC-3, DC4, and Electra aircraft. May be the only commercial operator still flying DC-3. Great views of the cockpits and engines. Seems like they're always working on the planes. Great fun!

Neat thing is, if you do a google image search on Buffalo airways, or on Ice Pilots, you will find good graphics for the decals needed for the livery.  I intend to do one of their DC-3s for sure, and maybe their C-46.

I really like their green liveries. When I was doing field work in the ANWR, Alaska I saw Everts Air C-46's flying supplies up on the North Slope, a very similar operation to Buffalo's. So I got a set of Draw Decals' "Salmonella" for the C-46, however, I sure do like that green coloring for Buffalo.

They used to have a TV show on one of the cable channels.  Was pretty interesting.

Leading Edge did a Buffalo sheet for the C-47. I have seen a couple of nice builds using the sheet, on was a C-54 using the modified C-47 sheet.
