Who wouldn’t take advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to fly the Alaskan Highway in November in a single engine Cessna that had been parked for three years?!?! My sentiments, exactly! After a week of waiting on the seller and buyer to agree on paperwork and a mutually acceptable insurance policy that I sourced, I was cleared for take-off.
Day 1: After my briefing that VFR was not recommended due to a fogged in pass, I had to consider the fact that I could be stuck in Anchorage for the winter. I made the decision that VFR on top was the best option on an otherwise beautiful day to get to Whitehorse by sunset. This was tricky on the best of times due to short days and losing a time zone. After an incredible flight with breathtaking frozen mountain views, I touched down in Whitehorse at sunset and covered the plane in the dark.
Working with the Tvacom crew for Luigi Cani, stunt flyer’s, stunt to fly formation with a fighter jet. Put together 16 jumps over two days and a great production crew and you cook up this great piece of eye candy. If you look real close, you’ll see me shooting from the back seat of the L39 in this here photo. 😉
