    Get Out: Alaska Aviation Museum

    by Brett Shepard on Nov 13, 19:41

    One way Alaskans like to get out is by airplane: There are more pilots per capita in Alaska than anywhere else in the U.S. Flying is not only a way of life, but an ingrained part of Alaska’s history. “It’s a proven biological fact that any time spent in or around airplanes is not subtracted from […]
