After nearly 27 years on the ground, this DC3 returns to the skies… with a new owner! Non other than McByrian himself! Thank you very much for chatting with me 🙂 Enjoy!
Shoutout to Mickey and the entire Plane Savers crew on this incredible achievement

  1. Oh wow you actually got to talk to Mikey! I watched hours of the Buffalo airways documentaries. Very cool!

  2. Love all the beautiful shots of DTD. Hard to believe they rebuilt that plane in less than 2 months!

  3. Thank you Mark great video fantastic job

  4. Superb Mark ! thank you for capturing this.

  5. You talked to Mikey McBryan? Wow. Gorgeous DC-3! So it's going to Buffalo Airways?

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this! It was awesome seeing your view of the flight!

  7. Great video , very pleased after watching your take on DTD 's flight !!!! 👍🍻

  8. Thanks for sharing! That was some excellent camera work on the flight and walk-around. Plane Savers!

  9. Very well taken. For those of us who were not fortunate enough to be there, it definitely adds additional magic to the epic day. Thank you very much for sharing this.

  10. Excellent capture of an unusual event. Bravo!

  11. Thank you for this. Perfect.

  12. Great video Mark. I hope Mikey gets a chance to see it!

  13. Mark, Thank you so much for publishing this great video. Clearly you had a good spot, a good camera, and a good eye. I can fill in a couple of blanks above: Red/White Livery: Canadian Department of Transport (mid 1950's? – early 1990's). Roundel is for 271 Sqdn RAF, designated in the RAF squadron code letter system by the letters YS.
    ( ). The letter code for this particular aircraft was YS – J (Plane Savers Ep. 133, May 14, 2019,

    ). The roundel location is historically correct; black/white "D-Day" stripes were added in a tribute to DTD's original D-Day participation. Radio callsign for this flight was Delta Tango Delta – Quinn Jones can confirm that (I'm sure he'll see this), and the log entries. I wasn't able to be there; I originally planned to travel down in April, but I only got as far as Edmonton, where I've been going back and forth to hospital every few days. Mikey said earlier (when asked if they'd be carrying passengers or paratroops on this flight) that the initial flight would be logged as "Aircraft testing and demonstration" or words to that effect. (It's somewhere between episode 99 and episode 155, LOL – too much scrolling for me tonight). Thanks again for this really excellent video.

  14. J’étais sur place et wow c’était spectaculaire. Très bon vidéo et merci. Thanks you

  15. Really nice job. A lovely way of adding to the culmination of Mikey's videos with Plane Savers. 10/10!

  16. Perfect. You captured the magic. Thank you. Thank you.

  17. Very good video, many thanks, a great effort and a great story.

  18. Doesn't the old girl look good amazing job the team have done in such a short time , to think she was robbed out and stood in the open for 27 years.

  19. This is a beautiful video. No music, no narration, just the sights and sounds of this special day. And with a surprise cameo 🙂 Thank you so much for posting this bonus "episode" of Plane Savers. It's exactly what this avgeek wanted to see 😊
