A quick plug: A couple of years ago, some friends of mine planned out a major aviation adventure and brought along an award winning documentary film maker to to record it all.  "The Great Arctic Air Adventure" documents their circumnavigation of Canada (!) in a pair of DHC-2 Beavers.  The first showing of the documentary will be Sept 7th at 7:00PM on KCTS 9 (and its Eastern Wa affiliates.)

I also recommend that you check out their website, which has a trailer of the film. 

One more item that should be of particular interest to soaring pilots.  Mark and Doug did an excellent job preparing for the risks inherent in their adventure.  Doug published an article titled "Risky Business" that explains their approach.
