Follow the amazing rescue of a fearless de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver in this captivating documentary shot in high definition. Watch as Olivia, a weather beaten shell of an airplane that sat forgotten for decades in the dusty Arizona desert, is restored and returned to the air.

The Immortal Beaver celebrates the history of a tough, versatile plane that changed Canadian aviation with its abilities to fly deeper and deeper into the remote northern frontier. The story swings from the barren desert to frigid Alaska and features rarely seen historical footage from the de Havilland archives. Plus, hear from Russ Bannock, a Canadian war hero and test pilot for the prototype Beaver, and enthusiasts, including Hollywood superstar Harrison Ford, a proud owner of a trusty DHC-2.
Held in such high regard, the Beaver became the first of a select few foreign-built aircraft to be imported by the United States military. It is one of the largest exports of a Canadian aircraft and has since served armed forces around the world. Despite its increasing popularity, de Havilland stopped production of the aircraft, and in 1967, the last Beaver rolled off the assembly line in Downsview, Ontario.
But the Beaver is still in use in more than 100 countries and has become a prominent plane for bush pilots around the world. Many, like the one in The Immortal Beaver, have been pulled from watery depths, restored and put to work in some of the harshest environments on the planet.
