The passion for flight has seized Alaska flyers and those who yearn to fly to the Last Frontier since 1913, when the first biplane arrived in crates via steamship and paddle-wheeler. In the decades to follow, Alaska’s skies buzzed with aircraft some brand-new, others patched together, and still others lovingly restored to their original beauty. Alaska’s Bush Planes offers a brief history of flight in Alaska, then transports the reader on a visual journey with favorite aircraft, some of which have served for decades. It’s a perfect book for the pilot or the pilot wannabe who dreams of flying in the Northland.
