This season we follow a treacherous transatlantic journey in the middle of winter as crews attempt to deliver two Canadair CL-215 waterbombers to their new owners in Turkey. But these aircraft are neither designed to fly in winter conditions nor configured for flying over larges bodies of water. Getting there proves to be a daring feat. And the drama unfolds as several pilots fresh out of flight school pay their dues as “rampies”, anxious for a chance to fly, even though few newbies make it. As they compete to rise up the ranks, they cope with ice storms, forest fires, treacherous landings and legendary owner “Buffalo” Joe McBryan’s famous temper.
