In the summer of 1999 I made a trip through Alaska, the final frontier. This video starts with a trip in the cockpit of a C-54. You can join me on board a flight from Kobuk to Fairbanks, Alaska’s second big city.
At Fairbanks you see several famous propliners like the C-46, DC-6 and DC-4. Also a visit to Fort Wainwright, where you see big props like the C-97 and PBY-4.
Also a turbo DC-3 and other aircraft in use by the US Forest service to drop smokejumpers over forest fires.
Finally down to Anchorage and Palmer, where you see more propliners still in use by various cargo operators.
Enjoy this great one hour video, and see the props of Alaska in action.
