Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Anchorage May 2017 part1 props (photo heavy)

Post by EC »

It has been on my bucket list for some time but this month I did make it to Anchorage.

It was only for 3,5 days and the weather was changeable but here are the propellor machines that I saw:

Northern Cargo no longer operates the DC6, this plane is parked along the entrance road as a kind of gate guard.

As it seems this is from regular spots @ ANC, so I guess just by rental car ;-)
Awesome report :-)

Thanks for the compliments guys :D

This was indeed a self guided tour, buy a ticket, rent a car and you can shoot the same.
The various companies on the side platforms usually give you a tour around their platform if they have some one to spare to escort you, just ask.

Kind regards

Wow, what a great set! Incredible variety of types and colour schemes.

Funny, I saw the below DC-3 in februay 2016 in a much warmer place: Marathon, Floriday Keys. It seems to be getting around a bit!
