IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson recently teamed up with Joe McBryan, owner and operator of Buffalo Airways, who is also a star of the History Television reality-TV show "Ice Pilots NWT". The singer got a chance to fly one of Buffalo's Second World War-era planes, the venerable DC-3, to Yellowknife.
The "Ice Pilots NWT" series focuses on Yellowknife-based Buffalo Airways, whose future is under the gun from the effect of an "economic downturn, a dwindling supply of specialty aviation gas and the high cost of flying vintage aircraft," according to the History Channel web site
Edmonton Journal's Sandra Sperounes and photographer Fish Griwkowsky of FisheyeFoto tagged along for the ride and were asked to document this once-in-a-lifetime meeting. Their report can be seen below.
