'BUFFALO AIRWAYS - Diamonds, DC-3s and 'Buffalo Joe' McBryan' will leave you on the edge of your seat...breathless with anticipation and awe! Experience the true-life adventure where heroic young pilots are recruited to fly World War Two airplanes in the most extreme conditions on earth under the demanding, watchful eye of legendary aviator 'Buffalo Joe' McBryan. Written by critically-acclaimed Author, retired pilot and former Buffalo Airways flight crew member, Darrell Knight. Includes 48 stunning photographic images of DC-3, DC-4 and C-46 Commando 'warbird' propliners in present-day use. Read how the young flyers and aircraft engineers from Buffalo Airways brave minus forty degree temperatures, engine failures and seemingly-impossible demands from expeditors and the airline's owner to bring food, fuel and freight from civilization to remote, isolated settlements high above the Arctic circle in lovingly-restored vintage aircraft. Fly along in the cockpit with these seat-of-the-pants aviators as they battle adverse weather, wing icing, runaway propellers, damaged engines, propeller strikes and dangerously-thin melting ice runways. Darrell Knight is also the author of "Pete Knight - The Cowboy King" and "Artillery Flyers at War", both available in hardcover and paperback editions. FEATURES: - 14 Chapters - Change the font, size, color and background - 48 stunning photographs of 'warbird' aircraft - Landscape and portrait orientation supported - Fully searchable - Table of contents index.
