Over Great Slave Lake (North West Territories) in a DC-3 during microbursts.

A former student Jamie MK from the Brampton Flight Centre is building time with Buffalo Airways (think the iconic show Ice Pilots) in a DC-3. Notice the outflow cloud and the wave of water created by the intense downpour. Can you imagine trying to land with this parked over an airport?  Or worse yet, training to land a float plane near the dramatic walls of water.
