347 viewsAirline: Everts Air FuelType: DC-6Registration: N451CEAirport: ENACity: KenaiState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 6, 2011This the only Everts aircraft in the newest paint scheme and quite possibly the only one due to controversial reaction from employees. It was challenging but I finally made it to Kenai and captured some great action in perfect sun. Ship 451 returns about 2pm and readies again for one more trip.
