I was a bit sad when Buffalo Air lost the ability to do passenger runs. I'd always hoped at some point to go up and take a ride on a DC-3 as well as see some of that part of the world. I know there are still some in parts of the world doing passenger flights, but the companies flying them don't exactly inspire confidence as far as maintenance.

I LOVE this series! This series is the ONLY reason I subscribed to the channel. This is by far one of the bestest reality based TV series I've watched!

The best reality TV series to ever come out, this and flying wild Alaska. Even if you don't understand aviation, you can easily become invested in this series.

That was very sweet and I feel like a fitting way send out a veteran. I know I personally would have loved to know that this makeshift dust dispenser, and some on hands elbow freeze, sent me off of the plane that made me happy over beautiful scenery.

Hey guys! My dad flew C-46s and C-47s during WWII in the Pacific. He thought me how to fly as a child and I was in the USAF for 20 years... Dad died in 1991. It's great to see these birds still flying... The memories of and with him abound! Thanks!!

I have never seen bigger abuse of people than in Buffalo Air .....People who work the hardest - turn in to donkeys..... Everything is hanging on promises - in the mean time people are turned into slaves with no time for private life. What a waste of time - trying to fly this dinosaurs.

istra70 28 gün önce
Because Buffalo Air is not competitive with this vintage aircraft......They need to invest in modernisation of the fleet - or close the door.

i will halariously point out that this documentary/show repeatedly makes it sound like 737-200 combi's are ultra modern. its so funny because those planes are also rare, and also very old so, its an old airline with old (legendary planes) trying to make it sem like (other legendary old planes) are super modern. haha

That'd be cool to be born into something, makes it easier because you have someone under your wing literally in this case, but being born into the wealth, or parents with business or property or any inheritance, or a skill trade, profession, like if your moms a nurse , high chance daughter will too.... my dad is a car mechanic and hydraulic engineer, i do neither.
