Buffalo Air. Photographed in Yellowknife (YZF), Northwest Territories. 1942 build. A couple of years after this (August 2013) it was written off after a non-fatal crash landing just after takeoff from YZF. Engine failure and overloaded. Person on Airhistory.net writes, "Her career started as USAAF 42-23509 in 1943, then Czechoslovak government as OK-VAV and French air force, including combat duty again, as 23509. Went civil as F-WSGY and eventually, in 1975, became C-GWIR. Smoke jumper platform as well as combined passenger-freighter aircraft with Buffalo."

Canadian Pacific Airways, at Whitehorse (YXY), Yukon. This one flying in blankets to stay warm in a northern Canadian winter. (Or how about, I 'shopped a sky around the one featured in this story:
DC-3 Yarn Bomb, Whitehorse, YT — Northern Front Studio )
