Probably purchased surplus. We're starting to see more and more of them in the Utility / Fire world...

Awesome pictures! Wish I could get an impromptu of 12 folks together here on the East Coast!

Last water of the year. Floats coming off next week. My Javron Cub was completed the end of May of 2015. I have 533 hours on it, and close to 400 on floats in Alaska. It's been a good run so far, and Lord willing, more to come.

Does wrenching on airport construction equipment count? My project actually went back together today as designed.

Resting now trying to figure out what I forgot;-)
 
IMG_4482.jpgIMG_4481.jpgIMG_4494.JPGTook my son on a flight to Monument Valley today. Met up with Wayne in his cub and flew down together. Great weather not to be wasted this time of year by failing to make time to go flying.

Did you see any of the "Last Alaskans" from the ANWR TV series on your trip?

Gary

I can't say that I've ever watched any of the "reality TV" shows made in Alaska. No cable/satellite TV at my place! I've known Heimo since he worked for Roger Dowding in the summer, I've flown him out of FYU many times...There are film crews in the N Fork of the Chandalar and Eagle that we fly around. The 'irk' brothers fly the crews into Heimo's place.

I got to tag along on a Fairbanks-Venetie-Arctic Village-Fairbanks run once. It was an interesting flight with low ceilings in Venetie and a pop-up IFR into Arctic Village.

Yeah no comms in Arctic, you need a thru clearance or a sat phone to operate there (IFR).
 
Went out a few miles East of town. Saw a few hundred elk and some deer. No really big bulls. After chasing the elk off, Landed at a friend's ranch strip and at another friends place nearer home. Been foggy but nice this A.M..
 
Landed a new LZ today. Interesting approach with three sets of low, medium and high power lines up river and it is at the base of a very tall bluff to the south which are our predominant winds here that makes for an interesting approach.

Not sure, All I remember was following SJ: OVER the pipeline then immiediately UNDER a biggish powerline and landing... hence the name.
