On display at Red Lake's Diamond Jubilee of the Norseman Festival, 1995. Carries the appropriate additional markings 'Diamond Jubilee "95"'. The personal aircraft of "Buffalo Joe" McBryan of Buffalo Airways, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. That evening I had the privilege of a scenic flight round the local area in the immaculately restored aircraft. Delivered new to the Saskatchewan Government Department of Natural Resources in 1946, nearly fifty years earlier.

Firing up and raring to go !! A puff of smoke from the exhausts heralds imminent departure. About to taxi out from its parking spot in the area behind Buffalo's hangar at Yellowknife Airport. In September 2015, suffered engine failure en route to Norman Wells. Unable to maintain altitude, a forced landing had to be made - intentionally wheels up - on the short gravel airstrip at Déline in very poor weather conditions. The aircraft considerably overran the runway. The crew evacuated safely, but the aircraft was written off.

A historic day for Buffalo Airways as they take delivery of their very first jet powered aircraft in Edmonton. Still wearing its Guernsey reg, once certified by TC, it will become C-FBAE. Pulling into the North Cariboo ramp as "Two Echo Sierra Kilo Alpha" on arrival from the UK. Routing for this one was Bournemouth-Reykjavik-Iqaluit-Edmonton.

Returning to the area at the rear of Buffalo's Yellowknife base having completed a trip, with engines just winding down. Note the unusual lower case letters of the registration. In the 1960s, spent five years on lease from Capitol Air to Lufthansa, whose logo is still carried on its nose.

With an orange Buffalo logo on its fin, catching the early morning sun outside the Buffalo Airways hangar at Yellowknife Airport. Later sustained substantial damage , in November 2012, due to a left main gear collapse on landing at Yellowknife. Then in September 2015 suffered engine failure some way short of its flight destination, Norman Wells. Unable to maintain altitude, a forced belly landing had to be made on the gravel airstrip at Déline in very poor weather conditions. The aircraft considerably overran the runway. The crew evacuated safely. The aircraft was a write-off.

After retirement from USAF service, converted to a firebomber by Aero Union in 1976. Sold on in 1981 to Conifair, who reconfigured the aircraft as an anti-budworm sprayer. Bought by Buffalo in 1996 and reverted to a firebombing role for a few more years. Seen here in store at Red Deer as Tanker, "56" but with overwing spray bars fitted again.

C-GBYU was one of two CL-215 based at Yellowknife during the 2007 fire season, at that time being operated by Buffalo Airways on behalf of the Northwest Territories Government. This aircraft was built in 1985 and has first been operated by Conair Aviation before joining Buffalo Airways . It appears that this airframe has been modified to CL-415 standard in early 2021 by Viking Air, the owner of the type certificate. The modification mainly consists of new and more powerful turbine engines, plus structural changes on the wing tips and elevator / horizontal stabilizer.

Parked on the ramp in front of the Buffalo Airways hangar awaiting its next flight. Only a few weeks later, this aircraft was written off beyond repair making an emergency landing off Yellowknife's main runway, after a go around following an engine fire and with a prop which would not properly feather.
