Checking right wing to be sure there is no ice or snow build up  CHECK OUT reflection of clouds on metallic shiny wing!

Checking left wing for same reason  WHOA I can see cloud reflection on the wing!

Checking right engines

Checking left engines   Dont you love shine?

Checking wheels

Checking to be sure flaps are set properly

Checking propeller blades to be sure there are no ice  WHOA WHOA  look at cloud reflection on propeller blades

Checking right propeller blades for same reason  WHOA WHOA I can see reflection of mountains on engine cover

Cannot help admiring metallic shine

Got to activate all de-ice buttons!!   I do NOT know what the pump button for alcohol is for!!

Starting left engines resulting into mind blowing exciting and massive engine start smoke

Starting right engines producing massive engine start smoke that is blown forward by powerful winter winds

Engines are ready for action!!! But wait  I need to spool up engines for few seconds to be sure they are ready for action in bitter freezing winter weather

Starting to taxi to short of runway 1 to start exciting flight!

Making sure the route waypoints are ready to avoid high mountains due to the fact there is no weather radar and no terrain warning computer meaning I must avoid mountains covered by clouds.

Here are waypoints: KOWOK PIPPR NUTUW WALUS AMOTT WEWWO ICICL BOB that will enable my plane to avoid running into mountains as seen on this map showing my specific flight path

Entering into runway 1 for more taxi and backtrack

After backtracking now starting exciting take off run producing thrilling combo of massive snow splattering and engine smoke

Airborne on climb to 5,000 ft

At 3,000 ft still climbing to 5,000 ft

Now starting to cruise at 5,000 ft

Passing Wood River that is rich in salmon fishes

Passing Iliamna Lake that is the largest lake in Alaska and third largest lake in America  There is offer of 100,000 buck reward by local Alaska newspaper for capture of Pacific Sleeper shark secretly lurking in the waters of that lake

Cruising across the same lake where you can see that due to so extremely sub zero freezing winter, the engines are producing condensation contrails

Checking all gauges to be sure everything sounds very kosher

Entering Cook Inlet to continue cruising where you can see that the plane is on safe side away from 10,000 ft high Chigmit mountain range that the plane is supposed to avoid

Still cruising above waters of Cook Inlet with background view of same high mountains

See how safe side the plane is cruising at 5,000 ft away from mountains

Whoa whoa whoa winter is soooo freezing that the engines are producing condensation contrails


Checking gauges again to be sure that everything is working well in freezing weather

On final runway approach to runway 06R (it is 06R in era 1960s/1970s) where you can see exciting engine smokes due to constant engine power adjustments to make sure the runway approach is smooth

Amazing cockpit view of night city lights of Anchorage
