399 viewsAirline: Everts Air CargoType: DC-6Registration: N351CEAirport: ENACity: KenaiState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 4, 2011From Wikipedia.org, "The Anchorage Station Manager stated that the DC-6 was still considered to be a valuable aircraft for operations in the harsh conditions of Alaska, with excellent landing and take off performances on gravel runways. The downside is the difficulty to find Avgas and the maintenance labor cost which is considered at 12 hours per each flight hour. Spare parts could also be a problem but they estimate they will have enough in stock to keep the last DC-6 flying until 2015.
