Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting the most famous Alaskan commuter route between two Alaskan cities Anchorage and Fairbanks

At international terminal of PANC

Finished with pushback

Dig nice shiny engines

Is it nice to have brand new tire replacements before flight?

Nice tail view

All airport vehicles waiting for the plane to start engines and taxi away

Dont you love very smoky engine start while the engines roar to alive?

Starting to make u-turn taxi to leave passenger apron for taxiway

Entering taxiway from passenger apron spewing engine smoke

look at the plane and all vehicle traffic!!

Still taxiing

Roaring engines continue to spew out engine smoke

Entering into runway 33 for take off

Airborne on climb to 21,000 ft past beach shore of Point Woronzof and its Point Woronzof Park which is one of popular spots for PANC airport spotting photographers catching view of planes taking off or landing

Making right turn to execute the route HOBBS BGQ EGRAM CACHE with background view of the forest of Point MacKenzie and waters of Knik Arm

Climbing through clouds

Still climbing with background view of Susitna River which is 15th largest river in America

Nice view of engines working hard.Forgot to identify this lake that has runway next to it (anybody knows??)

Passing famous 20,310 ft high Mount McKinley mountain range

leaving the mountain range which signals start of descent


Nice tail view of winter Alaskan sun

Engine view at 10,000 ft

Still descending now at 5,000 ft below clouds

View of Tanana River signals start of runway 02left approach

Deploying landing gear showing new tires

On final runway approach with background view of Chena hills

You can see road traffic on the road called Airport Perimeter Road

Seconds before touchdown

Ok few more seconds


Engaging reverse thrusters while front landing gear is making slow glide down to make soft touchdown

Engines roaring with reverse thrust

Check out cool fire house and Alaska Airline cargo building

Exiting from runway 02left into taxiway B to taxi to gate one
