Everts DC-6 In Winter Action

Post by Aharon »

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a typical cargo charter Everts flight from PASV Sparrevohn LRRS Airport located south of Sparrevohn in the Yukon–Koyukuk area of the U.S. state of Alaska to PAAQ Palmer Municipal Airport located 1 mile southeast of the central business district of Palmer in Matanuska-Susitna Borough, Alaska

Starting first of 4 engines at the cargo apron

Image

Leaving apron to taxi to runway

Image

Entering into runway to taxi

Image

Backtracking!!

Image

Image

Airborne on climb to FL190

Image

Passing through clouds at 10,000 ft

Image

Now cruising at FL190 eastward

Image

Passing Stony River very popular for kayak, canoe, and small to medium raft

Image

Cruising past vast mountainous landscape of Lake Clark Preserve and Wilderness

Image

Image

Image

Image

Time to descend from FL190 to 5,000 ft

Image

Descending above waters of Cook Inlet

Image

Still descending

Image

Still descending past PANC Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport airport where you can see Eva airline 747 cargo plane taking toward cargo area

Image

Descending past what I believe is SixMile Lake

Image

Because winds required me to use difficult approach to runway 34, I needed to fly past closer to Chugach mountain range where you can see on bottom of screenshot highway number one also known as Glenn Highway

Image

Image

At 3,000 ft with background view of Lazy Mountain

Image

Time to make very sharp left turn toward runway 34 with background view of Chugach mountain range and highway route one also known as Glenn highway

Image

Still on tight left turn toward the runway with view of Matanuska Rver below the plane while engines are spewing cool engine smokes due to constant adjustment of engine power required for maneuvering while dealing with winter winds

Image

Getting closer to runway

Image

Now on final straight runway approach while still adjusting engine power for smoothest landing

Image

Seconds before touchdown

Image

TOUCHDOWN

Image

Arriving at cargo apron

Image

Lazy Mountain is in background view

Image

Starting two right engines in hurry to go to PANC to pick up more cargo loads

Image

Image

Thank you for viewing my flight. Please stay tuned for next exciting flight.

Regards,

Aharon

Hi Aharon.

Great pics, thanks for sharing them.
