Cruising Alaska: May 2005

The huge number of "bush planes" operating in Alaska is one of the things that make the state unique, and I can sit and watch them all day given the opportunity. This beautiful bird, N336AK, seen taking off from Juneau harbour, was originally a DeHavilland DHC3 Otter when it was built in 1958, but is now a Turbo Otter, or Super Otter, after being modified by Texas Turbine Conversions. It is operated by Wings of Alaska.
