The president of Turkey has ordered two unique water bombers from a remote airline in Northern Canada. These bombers have to make a trans Atlantic flight during an especially cold winter. These bombers are converted to survive the distance but just as these pilots set off cracks in the bodged water planed begin to show.

So they fired their only flight attendant trainer and then complained about the government shutting them down when they knew that's what would happen the whole time? Sounds like a "them" problem.

Wonderful stories to be learned about aviation and its magical history in to 21st Century. Keep the episoids coming. Too bad for me during the early 1960s I didnt get a pilot license...might have been the youngest female ever to achieve that beginning to learn at age 11 as my father was a great instructor and began flying his own plane after his service WW II. LOTS of Joy Rides in Tri Pacer, Pipercub or Cezna? Unfortunately the last plane my dad flew and partial owner of: was the single engine Piper Cub or Tri Pacer which was envolved in a minor mishap Near Billy Mitchel Field MKE passengers & other co owner did not have serious injuries but obviously the Tri Pacer (N7030D) suffered damage and not repairible?... My Dad surley would have continued to acquire another aircraft but because of the rising cost of to own and operate new planes. He chose not to invest in any more aircrafts. His employer at the time Consolidted Freightways had promoted him to Terminal Mgr and eventually retired CF. He also was a member of: "The MID WEST PATHFINDERS" PILOTS ASSOCIATION. He certainly was appreciated by the pilots in the area who ask for advice on the expansion of Billy Mitchel Field. Was not aware of all the great accomplisments because he helped so many in all walks of life he keeping our household happy. Lastly because of WW II he was forced 1942 to enlist forfiting a musical/voice Scollarship from SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY Carbondale, ILL. All of us kids enjoyed dad's tallents and must have inherited them ...we all became successful like our father and mother both living to 86 year of age. It was my idea to have engraved (on the front of my parents "Toom Stone" approved by all.. a replica of the TriPacer dad flew with call letters N7030D perfectly etched. Just for the record my only bragging rights and facts are: learn or managed to pilot (fly) a plane before I received a Drivers permit or license. Now 72yrs Happily married for 40 yrs. 3 children +3 grandchildren 2 g boys 1g girl. Boys think they may want 2be piolts or doctors we'll see but the youngest difinately doctor. We as grandparents get told your g-kids talk like mini adults They have obviously inherited my father's postive ambitions. God willing all things are possible. Its more than just a wing and a prayer now a days....#1 if you make a mistake in life appologize and correct the initial mistake immediately. #2 if you owe someone money even a "Buck" $1.00 pay it. #3. If someone needs help you help them. Ive been following this advise all of my life because it was conveyed to me from a wise man 'my father'whom made it his mission in life to pass on good deeds a

If they let Roman who has a master degree take the test they may have been better off. He should of been the one to take the flight attendant manager exam. He may stay if he didn’t have to do physical labor.

Amazing achievement but if flying across Canada is the toughest part of the flight, why not invest the first leg in heading south to the USA and fly east across that ?

Wow Wonder - what a shame you have NO CLASS! Arnold “Arnie” Schreder, Chief Pilot at Buffalo Airways DIED NINE YEARS AGO! Yet you frame this episode as a deal / harrowing delivery, between Turkey and Canada that is ABOUT to be undertaken - I know, much higher views with this sleazy exaggeration. This flight is NOT about to happen - it happened nine years ago. And shortly after that - Captain Shreder passed on. May he and the other brave pilots who rule these extreme conditions in some of the most severe flying conditions on the planet, Rest In Peace with Honour. And you - WONDER - have - no - class. Arnie had more class in his cigarette-stained fingernails than your whole channel! "Hold onta' your hats, Boys" RIP Arnie

@Professor X so in your little world, employees who have no experience and have bad attitudes should get treated better than employees who have actual experience. You also can’t replace someone when that person screwed up on finding his replacement and yes they will hold Jeremy responsible for the Indian man who left.

Notice how everybody says you have a bad attitude when you know what you want in life and let it be known. Now if he just kept it to himself and got a opportunity from another company and just up and left the company would be in trouble because they have nobody to replace him

I am amazed at how long down times from flying or flight training is so casually treated by upper management and the owners. Flying skills deteriorate over long down time periods. There are no significantly realistic flight simulators to practice with. It's not exactly a clown car operation, but it's in the vincinity of being one. Hire pilots to fly, navigators to navigate, flight enginerrs to flight engineer, ramp workers to ramp work, and so on.

Somewhere along the line they should have purchased some seriously IFR/IMC equipped turboprop cargo aircraft with aft ramps. One reason the tricycle gear C-130 was created was to deal with the problems that presented themselves during the Berlin Airlift with tail dragger DC-3s, C-46s, and C-47s. Even the tricycle gear C-54s were problematic with side loading cargo doors. Even the Electras with side loading cargo doors can't seriously compete with a good high wing aft cargo ramp turboprop aircraft.

If Jeremy quit that attitude where's it's all about him & make it about the team he might get to fly, I'm sorry tho I couldn't handle his negativity all time n be like see ya then, him saying it sucks that his friend had to go home to be w his family instead of being supportive showed his colors in my opinion.

When I was a freight pilot, and flying a RC 500 it didnt have a de icer. So, I had to get creative, and I would use " pam" on the leading edges to keep the ice off, in case of icing condition. It worked. The bush pilots in alaska used, seal, whale oil, or what ever they can get their hands on. Survivability creates creativity.

I feel like the part with the hanger was for drama. Because you know you cant just make an episode where there is not setbacks and major system malfunctions lol. Seems like every time these guys fly, there is a engine fire and 45 knot cross winds with zero vis.

@RJ M Yes. And Transport Canada (Canadian FAA) is always breathing down the neck of Commercial vintage plane operators. If its a private "Show and Display" plane the rules are very simple. One of the reasons these old birds are actually really safe.. There are many parts that need to be serviced after every flight or ~10hours like valve clearance, oiling system, Mags, and so on... So there is someone (usually the same guy) putting his hands on the critical systems frequently. And thus, will catch something well before it becomes a problem. Planes that are modern can go 500 hours before they require a P1 (AKA A-check) inspection.

@TeKnoVKNG23 It has to meet all the same airworthiness requirements as new aircraft. Every bit of it's maintenance is under intense scrutiny as with all aircraft especially ones being utilized in commercial, for profit situations.
