Alaskas Bush Planes by Ned Rozell

It is no wonder that the Bush plane is an icon of the Last Frontier. Alaska has approximately six times as many pilots and fourteen times as many airplanes per capita as the rest of the United States. The Bush plane is a critical method of transportation for supplies and passengers in this vast state as well as a spectacular way to tour the majestic landscape. A perfect choice for Alaskan visitors and aviation enthusiasts, ALASKAS BUSH PLANES is loaded with stunning photos by Alaskas best-known landscape photographers. Images include float, ski wheel, and amphibian planes, along with information on the challenging weather conditions that pilots face, the types of cargo and missions they fly, and their destinations. Extended captions provide technical information on various aircraft and how they perform in Alaskas widely diverse terrains and climate zones, while an introductory essay covers the beginnings of aviation in Alaska.
