After a week full of discoveries it is already time to leave Alaska. At the end of this report, you'll find the first part of my bonus dedicated to Alaska. As there are three flights before being at my next destination, I'll split the bonus in three separate sections.
Ways too early we are at FAI Airport, here some shoots of this beautiful building:
Arrivals and check in are on the same floor. FAI is a really pretty airport, very spacy, and the extensive usage of wood gives it a very warm touch.
Alaska Airlines check in desks:
Boarding gates are upstairs:
Personne au check in, personne à la TSA. C'est ultra rapide.
Our plane arrives from Anchorage, right on time:
That's the cabin. I was first seated on 01A but I had a neighbor and the plane was almost empty. So I move backwards:
We boarded via a jetty, this you will never see in Europe for a small plane:
Our turbo prop and a view of the apron:
The crew was very friendly and smiling. They served us this morning snack mix and a drink:
That was adequate for the duration of the flight and the morning time, but nothing to write a book about^^
Two outside shoots and the lavatories, without sink. That was a first for me on a modern plane.
We landed early in Anchorage, which is always good.
Now time for the bonus, a flight to Coldfoot, north of the Arctic Circle, followed by a car return on the Dalton Highway. The pictures are quite self-explanatory. The flight was really good, took us about an hour to get there. The pilot tried its best to avoid the turbulences and there were quiet a lot with some heavy bumps!
The car drive back takes 6H00 as the road is almost always icy. When you cross a truck, you need to pull up, as you don't see anything because of the snow / ice blast.
Fairbanks - FAI
Anchorage - ANC
Absolutely nothing to blame on that flight, a smooth ride across Alaska!
