NEW DVD RELEASEAlaska's Bush Pilots "The Real Deal" (DVD)
"Alaska's Bush Pilots . . .The Real Deal" was recently filmed in the wilds of Alaska in high-definition by Jim Oltersdorf Film Productions of the Kenai Peninsula. It is a compelling, vibrant story of the great far north and the modern day pilots. Their aircraft are unbelievable! The film includes magnificent scenery of this raw and dangerous wilderness along with footage of spectacular giant Alaskan brown bears, eagles, moose, caribou and a host of other wildlife.
Many of his front covers that have graced the nation's largest aviation magazines are presented in this educational and interesting documentary!
This HD DVD documentary was directed and filmed by Jim Oltersdorf who has a one-hour TV special on The Discovery Channel's HD Theater that is currently airing worldwide. Entitled, "The Risk Takers 2...High Risk Photographer Jim Oltersdorf", Oltersdorf is also showcased on The History Channel's "Monster Quest" amongst other TV outdoor-type shows.
This documentary is interlaced with in-depth and exciting interviews of these courageous pilots as they recall many different stories of their experiences in the remote wilderness.
Some scenes are quite hilarious and others are serious and heart-pounding. In some of the tales they speak about the rescues of stranded fellow pilots, how they fly these incredible airplanes and the magnificence of their job. There is even a heart-rendering story about a father flying his children 40 miles from their remote wilderness home to go fishing at "a better spot"! Fun for the entire family!

For so long I have waited for anyone to come out with the 777. I am so glad that Gemini Jets was the first to fulfill my fantasy. This model is among the best. It has that quality that only Gemini Jets has the knowledge to bring fourth. If you collect 1:200 scale, or love the beauty of this aircraft you would be wise to add this stunning masterpiece to your collection. This model is beautifully detailed, one aspect of the model that kept me mesmerized for hours was the exquisite detail of the Trent 800s, they are simply beautiful. An absolute must have.
