Hey C.W.

Glad to see you still pop up. This photo and about 20 more have been floating on the site all day. FlightAware staffers are far and few on the weekend. I looked on my camera settings and seems I was cheated for vertical and upside-down settings.
This is not JetPhotos, there is no disciple and everything goes Mach 4 to the posting page without review by staffers. Clear skies over in Hossierville.

Actually, I think this was taken in Anchorage, judging by the mountains in the background.

I've heard that these aircraft climb like a rocket. Just like the A306.

OMG..........I just came again to this page and got a bout of vertigo. Anyone working on the weekend at this site?

I have a terrible feeling we are going to regret not having built more of these.

My very first flight was in a DC3 on 8th, may 1958 from Berlin-Tempelhof to Hanover.
Even it was an american airplane, flightcompany was Air France. I was 7 years old and still can remember the tiny little curtains and the light green sweet bonbons...must have been impressive... :-)

Yeah, not much you can do when the summer haze kicks in especially towards noon.

That church is in Luqa village, Malta. It is dedicated to St.Andrew and is a few hundred meters away from Malta airport’s runway 23/05.

Come back to that location and shoot more when the Islands' heat effect has no bearing on the photo.
Still a good * * * * 1/2.

Very interesting shot Joshua, centered, well-composed, nice background. some ground signage and a nice sunny day. There is something though about the overall photo. I just can not figure what it is?
Definitely not something you would see on the Jet Photos site.

I flew in this too. The way it flew reminded me of a big three-engine Cub.

I remember that distinctive Skyvan sound and the strong smell of the jet fuel.

Incredible Photo

In spite of the missing paint, the signature optical illusion of the FedEx logo is still very visible. Hint: it's between the X and the E.

I think the big dome belongs to St. Nicolas church in Malta (https://www.google.com/maps/search/st.+nicholas+church/@35.8993128,14.5176071,41a,35y,282.6h,79.29t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en). I haven't been able to locate the closer church, which make me think this was shot from like 10 miles away.

She is a little rough on the outside. Tail paint not sticking and the number two nose cowl and reverser is white so the FedEx logo is a partial.

In 1943, my parents were still newlyweds. Dad was sent to Fairbanks to survey what was to later to become Eielson Air Force Base. Mom remained in Anchorage where she worked as a nurse at the Alaska Railroad Hospital.

There was a long weekend and she decided to fly up to Fairbanks for a surprise rendezvous with Dad. So she went out to Merrill Field and boarded a Star Air Service Ford Trimotor for the flight to Fairbanks.

In those days aviation was still pretty new to Alaska, let alone scheduled air service. In those days, there was no IFR (instrument flight rule) when the clouds rolled in; it was only VFR (visual flight rule). However on the Anchorage – Fairbanks route they did have The Alaska Railroad tracks as a navigation aid. The pilots would just fly close to the ground where they could keep an eye on the tracks for a reference.

On this particular flight, they boarded the Ford Trimotor and departed. The clouds set in as they were flying north. They started to follow the railroad when the clouds really socked in. The pilot turned back, and returned to Merrill Field, Anchorage. Everyone got out of the plane, and the pilot told the station manager what happened.

Another pilot heard what happened and piped up, “I’m not chicken, come on, let’s get back on the plane.” So everyone trooped back on the plane, again. They set off for Fairbanks and followed the railroad, real close, and they made it.

It was a happy rendezvous until Mom told Dad about the flight. When it was time for my Mom to return to Anchorage, Dad insisted she take the train.

This airplane was also featured on the TV show Mannix on Saturday January 13, 1968. (Season 1, Episode 16).
