Water Bombers Won't Withstand Winter Trans-Atlantic Flight | Ice Pilots NWT | Wonder

Pilots that fly in the coldest parts of the world have a code, 40/40/40, the trifecta of no-fly weather. The temperature is minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit in the air, on the ground and at the flight's destination. These sub-zero temperatures cause lethal flying conditions The pilots encounter the menace of wind shear at notorious Bear Rock and now that the Turkish waterbomber deal has gone through, it's up to lead mechanic Cory Dodd to turn two lightweight, summertime planes into aircraft able to withstand the rigours of a North Atlantic flight in the middle of a brutal winter.

Buffalo Airways is an airline based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. They mainly fly WWII-era piston powered propeller planes in minus 40 degrees and land on tiny strips of tarmac in the tundra.

Feels weird seeing this. I've dispatched on -45C days, pretty sure I remember seeing Buffalo operating during it too, granted it's now a good few years on since when this was shot

Very nice views of the green pickle. I wonder what they call it.. The sounds are awesome too. Starting up especially, and running, muffled sounds in the distance.. big pistons are awesome. If that rubber hose went bad 50 hours later than when it did, Turkeys would've had a failure on their new plane as soon as they got it.

These planes are clearly in the wrong hands. Either all this is to drum up drama and tension or these people have no clue what they are doing. None of these planes are air worthy if you take what you are told at face value. Yes, these planes are old.. very very old. Both I have experience with and grew up around.. the problems they are having point to incompetence. But when properly maintained they are amazingly safe. These guys are like shade tree mechanics. I wouldn't trust them with a paper airplane.

He replaced a push rod in less than an hour! Outside! Standing on a ladder in 40 below zero weather so cold the oil freezes and gets sticky? What? I wonder if he could change a crank bearing..

My bro in law is from around there. He said if you grew up there you were either a tin bender and rivet popper (I forget the exact wording) or a banker. He ended up working in Dallas remodeling jets for other countries that had more relaxed laws regarding mods.

Obama caused the recession one of the worst. Now Biden who stole an election is doing worse. No way Biden was popular enough to beat President Trump who had more votes than any President in history. More people voted in this election than are registered voters.

Nothing like constant life or death drama to spice things up.I ll spare the details. Flying the north in winter requires that you pay attention to be sure but this comes across as a bad fiction Hollywood movie. As fòr the ferry flights across the Atlantic, these are done almost daily and have been fòr many years.

I am sat hear thinking 💭 wtf are these people on, how can you find the courage to fly these old crates, they must either have a death wish or they are just plane ✈️ crazy. The amount of rules and regulations they must be breaking is beyond belief, ok, I realise that they provide almost an emergency lifeline to remote settlements, but, they should surly have better equipment and especially aircraft, aircraft that are designed for this kind of environmental conditions.

They didn't, during and after this show's filming. They got shut down for a while due to their maintenance practices. I think they're back in operation now, but I imagine their business took a big hit.

Where is the one of them flying across the Atlantic or is there one? I have no idea what keywords to search for. I just stumbled in. I assume it's a tv series of some kind. They probably got their idea from Deadliest Catch or something like that.

@Ken Belmont I haven't lived in cold weather climates much, but I've seen icicles form on my own hair when it's super cold. It depends on the local climate, I think; both places where this happened (North Dakota and Minnesota) had similar climates.

No but there were icicles on the guy's mustache when he got out to fix the backfiring engine! That was just so phony. This whole episode was clearly just made for entertainment purposes. I've lived in Canada all my life and I've been in -40 degree weather many times and I've never seen a man's mustache form icicles like that!!

@Softail77us Single engine aircraft use exhaust manifold baffeling for heat as it is a short and direct channel through the firewall to the cabin. It's very effective. Cabin class twins that are turbocharged fly at higher altitudes and pumping exhaust heat from engines located out board from the cabin doesn't work. Turbo charging and pressurization (30'000 FEET) require gas fired combustion heaters.
Softail77us 2 aylar önce
@Paul miller Does the cabin air get warmed via the exhaust manifold? Kinda like a volkswagen beetle except without the fumes?
Paul miller

@Softail77us This aircraft was originally powered by a radial engine. (Gasoline powered) they went to turbine power for more performance not to mention lighter weight. I do both heaters for these aircraft but the turbine powered aircraft is what i see in my shop. The heater is for the cockpit only. I also do heaters for the DC6/7 for operators in Canada and Alaska. Buffalo are now operating more advanced aircraft
