According to this report by CBC News, the DC-3 clipped some trees and suffered a hard landing. There were no injuries to the passengers and crew members on board. Buffalo Airways is famous as the airline featured in the Canadian TV series “Ice Pilots”. It is not clear if any of the TV production crews were filming yesterday.
