Baffinland Mines needs to get equipment to a remote mine in Nunavut to support shipping operations and have hired one of  Volga-Dnepr’s Ilyushin-76  aircraft to take on this timely operation. Watch this plane take off from North Bay Jack Garland Airport's 10,000 ft runway.

"S3 came to North Bay looking for a place to undertake technical trials and testing of equipment for our future sub-orbital shuttle. We were attracted by the possibilities at the airport, facilities at Canadore College and open airspace. What we have found is tremendous support and forward thinking that has made our partnership nothing short of exemplary."
