Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a darn pretty New Year Day flight from PAUN Unalakleet Airport located one nautical mile north of the central business district of Unalakleet, Alaska to PAOM Nome Airport located two nautical miles west of the central business district of Nome, Alaska.

Boarding the plane in sub zero freezing weather on New Year Day

Sitting in captain seat doing pre-flight check list while cockpit window shows the view of truck belonging to Jim Tweto that a new rookie Era airline pilot accidentallly broke the driver door by opening it in powerful winds that damaged the door

You can see Jim Tweto's private GA planes!!

Taxiing to short of runway 32

Holding short of runway 32 doing final checklist and making sure there are no polar bears on runway. You can see green Era airline terminal building and the famous car with damaged driver door

Yeah I haven't used the Dash 7 since my FS2004 days. It was a great model from memory.

Splitman and Cowpatz,

Thanks for your kind words.

Wondering which airlines in New Zealand had used Dash 7.

Only Newman’s Air which was eventually taken over by Ansett and replaced by Dash-8s.
