Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice Western airline flight abroad 737-200 with cream color Indian chief Western livery from PADQ Kodiak Benny Benson State Airport located four nautical miles southwest of the central business district of Kodiak on Kodiak Island in Alaska to PANC Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport located 5 miles southwest of downtown Anchorage.

Boarding the plane



Closing rear passenger door and retracting front passenger door stair



Time to turn all required lights and to start engines!!



Since PADQ does not have pushback tugs, the plane is making tight u-turn toward taxiway



Taxiing to short of runway 07



Holding short of runway 07 for take off clearance



Take off clearance is granted and entering into runway 07 for more taxi and backtracking



Now backtracking at beginning of runway 07
