Had to wonder how long it takes before the snow settles and they can accept the next inbound flight? Brings a whole new meaning to "Caution Wake Turbulence" ya think?
Anchorage is indeed, a BIG gas station for the heavies that come an go to Asia. That's the way our Uncle Ted (Sen. Ted Stevens) set it up to help pay for his airport. I fly the Dreamlifter, and the Polar birds( no, that wasn't me in Witicha). We here in Anchorage just kind of get used to the snow, and we take the necessary precaution for that. My compliments to the videographer, I never get to see the picture from this angle.
Wish he'd rolled on the Gooney Bird take off.... love round engines on classic aircraft....
That would have made the video complete...maybe even get a shot of the classic C-46
Oh no kidding...so it IS Federal Express express. I stand corrected.
This is Santa's own airport, based in the norh Pole.
Everything else and anything else which you hear is true bull..
Merry christmas to everyone
