In June we planned to head out to Anchorage
to fly a few days with our Austrian friend Dietmar Schreiber, as he is
definately the ‘master of Alaska’ when it comes to chasing
all that fantastic old metal that is still flying there.
And it certainly was a great roadtrip with a lot of interesting stops
to indulge ourselves into the floatplanes and Beavers…Alaska style.
We even got to fly in one to get some cool air to air photos of the alltime
classic Beaver on floats. We also had a great visit to Everts Air, the
company still flying the DC-6 for freight and fuel all across Alaska.
However, this report is about our unexpected but brilliant encounter
with the jetfighter power of Eielson airbase. It’s great to have
friends in aviation all around the world.
