A Ball O'Snags

It's Buffalo's busiest winter yet, and they roll out the C-46, TXW, to fly all the freight up the Mackenzie Valley. But when one of TXW's engines catches fire, Buffalo scrambles to find a backup plane in time for Christmas deliveries. They look to their newly purchased Electra, XFC, to fill the void, but Adam, Chuck, Brian and Mikey discover it has a cracked windshield and cannot be flown safely. Joe, Brian and Cory fly to meet Rod in Red Deer to grab a replacement windshield. When they arrive, Joe first reveals his other plans—he wants the second Electra ZFE dug out of the snowbank where it's been sitting for months and get it up and running so that it can replace XFC on the Valley run. Rod's upset that he wasn't given more notice, and unloads on Mikey about Joe's reactionary management style. Back in Yellowknife, Buffalo's newest rampie, Prefkar Mony, is a determined young pilot from India who's got his eyes on flying Joe's prize planes. But first he has to adjust to life in the North—and purchasing proper winter gear is the first thing on his list
