From rookie pilots chasing a dream to mechanics defying the odds, the crew at Buffalo Airways, the world's toughest airline, fly impossible missions despite a fleet of museum-piece aircrafts and the brutal Northwest Territories winter. Despite the toughest conditions on the planet, they fly people, food and vital supplies.
