Arctic pilot Don Hamilton's book 'Flying Overloaded' is an exciting journal of flying in Canada's Arctic. Packed with hair-raising episodes, some so unbelievable it makes you wonder how he ever survived. You will find many of the stories are about stark terror. Although some of Don's flying may have been boring the book certainly is not.
It tells of Don's days of flying in the Far North for various companies, including training pilots on the DC-3 for Buffalo Airways in their early days, and in support of his two fly-in lodges with his own aircraft. This by itself was exciting; more so when you realize he overloaded most of the time and flew in bad weather simply because there was no other choice.
A remarkable story of the Arctic in the pioneering days of the early bush pilots by one of the most memorable characters who made the north accessible.
Forward by 'Buffalo' Joe McBryan.
