Ah yes. Manitoba. Our fire season runs from when the last snow melts in early summer and the first snow falls in mid - summer. Typically, about 3 hours

This plane appears to come from Buffalo Airways in the Northwest Territory. I've seen this plane on the T.V. series that featured Buffalo Airways called Ice Pilots. The show featured the Mc Bryan family with the father Joe(owner) and his sons. I was attracted to the show because they had a fleet of DC-3's. I don't know what's become of Buffalo Airways.

Spent a memorable day fishing on the the Winnipeg river years ago watching a group of 215s scoop water to drop on the Bernic lake fire. Thoroughly enjoyed the sound of the Pratt & Whitneys being throttled back up right beside us, a sound and experience I will never forget.

Nice photo! Except for the snow. Im so tired of winter.
@Gary Grogan. Come on over. We'll find you a nice remote lake. Unfortunately we won't be flying in with one of these.
