de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver

@ Anchorage, AK

August 2007

Bush planes are extremely popular in Alaska and can be found everywhere.  While touring Anchorage, I photographed this Beaver float-plane.  Rust’s Flying Service provides flightseeing and air taxi services in the Anchorage area.  First flown in 1947, over 1,600 were delivered when production ceased in 1967.  Viking Air rebuilds Beavers into Turbo Beavers, powered by a PT-6 turbine engine.  Panasonic DMC-FZ30, processed with Aperture.
