Douglas DC-6 Tour

Status: Active
Description: Canada's northern cargo haulers Buffalo Airways (featured on the TV show Ice Pilots) flew two CL-215s (roughly) along this route to deliver them to the Turkish Government during the 2008 recession. While the DC-6 isn't a CL-215, both planes make use of the twin-row, 18-cylinder R2800 Double Wasp radial engine. Buffalo also operates the older and smaller DC-3s & DC-4s for their passenger and cargo routes out of Yellowknife.

A special thanks goes out to CAN2946 Jared G and CAN2128 George M for their time spent on this tour.
