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.

More than likely a maintenance repositioning as N251CE took off later probably to replace the open cargo position out of Anchorage. Everts used to fly a C-46 or DC-6 every night for a mail run ANC-FAI-ANC years ago but it seems to have stopped.
