Ice Pilots

Can I commend to you the Discovery TV 'Testodocumentary'* series 'Ice Pilots NWT' which starts on Quest tommorrow? http://press.discovery.com/uk/quest/...ms/ice-pilots/ It's about an airline in Canada's North that operates a bunch of old piston aircraft - DC3's, C46's etc. It showed here earlier this year to rave reviews. I'm not saying that there a bunch of plane spotters on Rib.net but I suspect some of you will like it.

* Testocumentary = reality shows where men are men and women are men to. e.g. Deadliest Catch, Heli-loggers etc.

Saw this advertised last week and thought it looked worth watching but had forgotten about it.

Anything with Dakotas and slightly eccentric pilots has to be good, especially if it's real life.

Thanks for the reminder

Would 'Whale Wars' fall under the category of 'Estrocumentary' ?
