So I found out that there is a company in Northern Canada that still uses DC-3's on regualr pax service..They have daily service between hayriver and yellow knife canada....now my problem is does anyone know if any airlines serve those airports as well? Ide love to fly on the dc-3 but have no clue how to get up there. Anyway i hope this is the right place to post. thanks. -Also i love in maine so any airlines from montreal would be easy. thanks

You can also fly Canadian North from Calgary, Edmonton or Ottawa (via Iqaluit and Rankin Inlet) up to Yellowknife and take the DC-3 to Hay River. Also Canadian North has flights between Hay River and Edmonton.
I looked at a few random flights and the ones I looked at Canadian North was sometimes hundreds of dollars cheaper than First Air. Also with Canadian North you can get on the last F-28 flying in Canada, enjoy some of the nicest 737-200Combis around, have some decent inflight service, and points from Air Canada's frequent flyer program can be used.
