My office mate, Drake Olson, makes his National Geographic Channel debut tonight on Alaska Wing Men at 10PM et/pt.
Here’s what NatGeo has to say about the show:
Airplanes are the lifeblood of Alaska, transporting critical supplies and rescuing the lost and injured in areas where roads don’t reach. But violent weather and extreme terrain make these the most dangerous skies in the country, and bush pilots often go beyond the call of duty to get the job done. Alaska Wing Men goes inside this perilous profession to witness firsthand the risks they face.
Film crews are a little obsessed with Alaska right now. But if you can stomach one more reality show about the 49th State, watching Drake always makes for quality entertainment.
