Another great season!!!
This is looking out to be another great season!!! Fantastic show!!! A phenomenal blend of aviation, great "real people" and breath taking locations. The show can't help but to pull you away from your reality into this far away, yet so close, world for an hour. It is very much worth watching again and again!!!
Flying Wild Alaska is an must-see program about the last of the pioneers in our country and the wonderful, warm and giving Tweeto family.
It is a program for all ages and sets a wonderful example of selflessness as it braves the Alakan elements to be a lifeline to all.
Backround themes combine native music as well and adds nuances to the action.
Hope it continues for many, many seasons.
