Description: 83-IP NWT: S01E02 Pre-Christmas Rush: C46, DC3-C47, L-188 S01E02: (102) "Pre-Christmas Rush" (Air date: 25 November 2009) (Aircraft: C46, DC3-C47, L-188. Landings max – 400fpm, No AP/GPS) It's the Christmas season and the northern communities depend on Buffalo more than ever to fly in food and supplies. But the engine in the C-46 seizes up in the tiny town of Norman Wells, stranding Scott and AJ and causing a chain reaction that pushes the whole company to the breaking point. Crusty mechanic Chuck Adams faces the challenge of replacing the entire engine—bare-handed in the ?30 °C (?22 °F) deep freeze—on the remote tarmac. Back at the Yellowknife hangar, tempers flare as cargo manager Kelly Jurasevich is pushed to the breaking point to re-route the Christmas food and goods. But when the landing gear on the backup C-46 gets stuck, captain Devan Brooks must turn back. Yet Joe presses Mikey in no uncertain terms; they've got to get the goods out somehow. After landing on leg 3, one of the engines on the C46A seizes. What to do? The Buffalo Air cargo deliveries are already backed up. At -50F not much is running!! We get back to Yellowknife: the other C46 has gear problems so we’ll have to try our last resort: and try to put the Lockheed Electra L-188 into service to do the cargo deliveries: It’s the only aircraft that is still running in these cold temps and it is the only aircraft that has the haulage capacity to deliver the backlog of cargo!

Description: Tour 86 IP-S01E03 Ice Pilots NWT - Fuel to Uranium City (DC-4) S01E03: (103) "Birthday from Hell" (Air date: December 2, 2009) (Will just call it “Fuel to Uranium City”). Aircraft: DC-4 - Landings max: -400fpm, No AP/GPS) It is chief pilot Arnie Schreder's birthday, and he and Scott take Kelly along for her first ride on the daily C-46 supply run. Kelly wants to meet Buffalo's clients—especially to soothe feelings after the Christmas cargo dustup. But a string of bad luck threatens to spoil the day—and the naughty birthday surprise Kelly has waiting back at the hangar. Ramp hand (or "rampie") Jeremy Dow is desperate to move up the ranks and out of the numbing grunt work he's had to endure for the past four months. But when new rampie Audrey Marchand's enthusiasm and "can-do" attitude impresses boss Joe, Jeremy realizes she may just jump the queue. And after the crew works all night to install gas tanks in the DC-4, hotshot new co-pilot Alex joins captain Justin Simle on a tricky fuel haul. Along the way, he grabs the chance to execute his first take-off, and get in some rare "low flying" over the spectacular northern landscape. We fly from Yellowknife to Stoney Rapids – then load fuel (10,000 liters) for each trip from Stoney Rapids to Uranium City with fuel. Make sure you obtain the tour download for all of the tour specifics. This is our version of “Ice Pilots – NWT” - S01E03 “Fuel to Uranium City”. 11 Legs: Flights: AKAIP0054-4N through AKAIP0064-4N.
