Buffalo Airways, established in 1970 and based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, has garnered attention and admiration from aviation enthusiasts and history buffs alike for its distinctive operational model, prominently featuring a fleet of vintage, piston-powered aircraft like the Douglas DC-3 and Curtiss C-46. These venerable aircraft not only serve as operational assets but also as flying monuments to a bygone era of aviation, reliably serving remote northern communities with essential passenger and cargo services. The usage of these classic planes, appreciated for their durability, reliability, and the capability to be maintained in-house, is driven by both practical and sentimental motives, including the preservation of a tangible, functioning piece of aviation history.
In a compelling blend of historical and modern operational approaches, Buffalo Airways recently integrated a Boeing 737-300 freighter, registration C-FBAE, into their fleet, marking a substantial upgrade in their cargo transport capabilities. Formerly registered as EC-LJI, the addition of this jet-powered aircraft not only signifies an expansion in the airline's capacity and service scope but also symbolizes a convergence of the classic and the contemporary in aviation. This strategic incorporation ensures that Buffalo can continue to proficiently serve the remote and isolated communities of northern Canada while also exploring new avenues and opportunities in the cargo and charter sectors across extended distances.
This livery is compatible with both the IXEG 737 Classic (X-Plane 11) and IXEG 737 Classic Plus (X-Plane 12). For best results, use alongside the RGMod (currently only available for the XP11 version at the time of writing), or the window plug mod by Recreation (compatible with both).
Using this livery with the RGMod will also provide an under-wing registration mark along with the reg placarded on the panel.
