Default Topping Off With Fuel - Work Horse DC-4

Topping off my RV-6 for a local flight. 4-14-2018. Pulled up to the pump and guess what was also fueling for a flight?

Actually it was taking on a load of Jet-A to fly out to Western Alaska.


There are two of these stationed here in Kenai, also a couple of C-46 Commandos. Still trying to get a photo with the C-46 and one of the Air Force C-17's or C-130's that do instrument approaches here in Kenai.

Really awesome to be driving into Kenai from the North road and see a C-46 on final with a C-130 turning base. Talk about heritage flights....

Anyway-where I work both the C-46 and DC-4 overfly my location, work stops and Mike stares out the window. Great sounds!

BTW-One of the C-46 drivers built a beautiful RV-6A that he keeps parked near the C-46.

Best regards,
Mike Bauer

Default Alaska workhorse

On ground there, back a few, watched tanker ship w/ high water line being loaded via a long 100 yd.+ dock, (w forklifts, etc.). Stumbled across it thru the trees by accident, rural area. Clear day, could see the Aleutians on the horizon.
