The GREAT ARCTIC AIR ADVENTURE:
“Take the worlds northernmost skies and explore the planet’s “last imaginary place”—The enigmatic Arctic. The Great Arctic Air Adventure is the story of Seattle’s Mark Schoening and Doug DeVries, who piloted their de Havilland Beaver seaplanes around Canada via the famed Northwest Passage. Over six weeks of battling miserable weather, frozen tundra and inaccessible terrain in one of the least populated places on earth, the pair builds a lasting bond and discovers that in the unyielding Arctic, adaptation is key.” Run Time 01:18:55
And the adventure continues... all the way into your living room. The Great Arctic Adventure will be airing on local television:
