McKinley Flightseeing Pictures

Had a great time in Alaska, only one bad weather day in the two weeks that we were there. Only got to do one flight – around and over the Mount McKinley base camp. Unfortunately we were too late in the season to make a glacier landing, the snow had already become too hard. Also unfortunate, we were two days too late taking the flight for perfect weather. Two days before our flight it had been cloudless over the mountain but the day we did it, the clouds were around 16,000 feet so we did not get to see the summit (but had enjoyed great views from the ground earlier in the week).

Hoping to get my flying club annual review taken care of on Thursday. There is a big storm coming down from British Columbia right now which may get in the way, we shall see. But in the meantime, feel free to take a look at my McKinley flightseeing pics or, if you have lots of time on your hands, take a look at the entire Alaska album.

  1. I just looked through your photos, great stuff. I took a flight with Talkeetna Air Taxi a few years back and absolutely loved the experience. The weather prevented us from seeing the peak of Denali but we did get to do a Glacier landing which was a ton of fun. I told the pilot I was a pilot so he let me sit up front with him in the DH Beaver.
