The passion for flight has seized Alaska flyers-and those who yearn to fly to the Last Frontier-since 1913, when the first biplane arrived in crates via steamship and paddle-wheeler. In the decades to follow, Alaska's skies buzzed with aircraft-some brand-new, others patched together, and still others lovingly restored to their original beauty. Alaska's Bush Planes offers a brief history of flight in Alaska, then transports the reader on a visual journey with favorite aircraft, some of which have served for decades. It's a perfect book for the pilot-or the pilot wannabe-who dreams of flying in the Northland.
