Air North flew one between Fairbanks and Whitehorse until recently,
altho it seemed to go in and out of service (probably based on passenger
load).  About 10 years ago I bought a used VW camper in Seattle and
drove it back to Alaska; my wife flew down on Air North to meet me in
Whitehorse expecting to fly on the DC3.  I sat next to the terminal for
about an hour with an appropriate vintage camera waiting to photograph
the landing until she walked out to find me, having landed 45 minutes
earlier on a Beechcraft :-(
