What a great family show. Looking forward to the next show times
My new favorite show
As an Air Traffic Controller and a Pilot you realize the degree of difficulty these pilots have is second to none. If you are a pilot, a flying enthusiast, or just wanna see people do the near impossible by doing it in a Magiver type way this is the show for you. Again love this show and ice road truckers don't have half the balls these people do
Finally a show about the unsung heros of Alaska
This looks like it is going to be a great show. I still feel the pull to Alaska. 23 years ago when I was finishing my training for the A&P license and just starting to fly
I was offered a job with a small airline in Bethel Alaska. The promise of adventure in Alaska and the wide open spaces and no people seemed perfect for me. Like
a typical 22 year old I let the empty promise of disloyal girl and my parents talk me out of it. It will be nice to see what I missed and maybe if the chips fall in place
where I might go to retire. Because I will never stop working. So if you love aviation or just work in the field this show is a winner to get a good view of what our fellow
co-workers and extended family of the sky deals with in the Last Frontier.
