414 viewsAirline: Everts Air CargoType: Douglas DC-6Registration: N151Airport: ANCCity: AnchorageState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 10, 2010Great angle of N151 as she banks slightly right with crosswinds as she departs Anchorage. Strangely enough the same registration was worn by another DC-6 as N151 but was written off while landing on a gravel strip in Alaska in minus 35 degree temperatures.

310 viewsAirline: Everts Air CargoType: Douglas DC-6Registration: N151Airport: ANCCity: AnchorageState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 10, 2010Originally delivered to Western Air Lines in 1957, Alaska airlines in 1961, and the FAA before being converted to a DC-6BF freighter version in 1972. Everts aquired her in 1983 from Alaska airlines as a cargoliner called "Silver Streak". Seen here making a last minute correction to account for the heavy crosswind from the South.
