Taken in 2012 as we were flying across the Denali in Alaska. The RV's small in it, but the landscape's BIG!

erikpmort,
Sorry I don't have any higher res than the source on my photobucket site
It was snapped from one of my travelling companions in their Bonanza. Of course we reciprocated for them:



Great trip, and we were very lucky to see McKinley so clearly!

Default The best so far of our second build

I started this tread a while back and it's nice to see that there's so many nice air-to-air pics out there! Keep them coming guys!

Right now, I'm in phase 1 with our second build, so here's a pic:




More pics of the plane can be found in this tread, post # 20:

Default Alaska trip

Hi Mark,

Your Alaska trip was amazing, I read your entire story. Curious about your last leg from Ketchiken to WA.? how much fuel left in the tank when you landed?

I just had a look at my trip log. That leg was 4.2 hours chocks to chocks and used 29 gallons (from 42). Friday Harbour is the closest stop in the lower 48 and would save about 20 minutes.
