Nice Cloudy C-46 Curtiss Commando Flight

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

 

Straight out of NWT ICE PILOTS episode, here is a nice Curtiss C-46 Commando flight from Ekati Airport (IATA: YOA, ICAO: CYOA) is located at the Ekati Diamond Mine, Northwest Territories, Canada to CYZF Yellowknife Airport in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.

Best part of flying Curtiss C-46 Commando is that you get to fly at required 10,000 ft giving you gorgeous view of clouds as seen on this example showing combination of views of clouds and spinning propeller out of left cockpit window

Thanks all for kind words!!!

Loan,

 

I am sorry but I do not understand your Lufthansa crane comment??? If you are referring to logo on the tail of Buffalo Airways C-46, that is logo of buffalo animal, not crane.

Loan probably means the logo on the nose beneath the cockpit which does look like Lufthansa.


KInd regards

Jean-Paul,

 

Ahh thanks for explanation. I did not notice the crane under cockpit window!!

 

Loan92,

 

This aircraft was on lease to Lufthansa many years ago before Buffalo got it, as with most of aircrafts in Buffalo Airways fleet, the airline owner Buffalo Joe leaves odd logos and bits of paintwork that refer to their history.
