Buffalo Airways is going to put the NWT on the entertainment map, but first it made sure to thank the community it calls home.
Hay River was treated to an exclusive viewing of Buffalo Airways' new reality television series, 'Ice Pilots NWT,' produced by OMNI's History Television. The 13-episode show premiered on November 18 nation-wide, but special treatment was given to Hay River.
The first showing attracted over 280 excited viewers to the Hay River cineplex, where tables were dotted with black and green cupcakes and free shirts were given out as proof of attendance. The celebration was a completely sold out event.
