Since we're talking about TV shows. I don't watch much TV ( don't even have cable) but I came across this show a couple of weeks ago and REALLY enjoyed it. Last weekend it was on for a few hours, one episode after another, so I was 'flying high' .
For the most part, the show concentrates on ERA's home base in Unalakleet and what it takes to run an airline in the north, dealing with the weather, the enormous distances, sparse population, etc. There are flights to Barrow, Nome, and they even dropped people off in the middle of nowhere with no runway . The scenery is magnificent and you get a glimpse into some very different lifestyles, different cultures and some adventurous people.
Anyway, if you haven't seen it, give it a try. carol
