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.

The "Ice Pilots" logo beneath the cockpit windows marks involvement in the TV series of the same name which dramatised the exploits of Buffalo Airways in the locally extreme winter weather. The name "Summer Wages", with its dollar bill, is of longer standing. Joined Buffalo Airways in 1980, previously in military service with the RAF and then the RCAF as KG602, latterly 12932.
