The jet engine on each wing has a hydraulic driven inlet door that closes when not in use so the turbines do not windmill inflight causing bearing failure.

322 viewsAirline: Everts AirType: Douglas DC-6Registration: N/AAirport: FAICity: FairbanksState: AlaskaCountry: USADate Taken: May 11, 2010A sight of the Everts future? Perhaps not. The DC-9's will for now be a suppliment to help expand their reaches to more communities. For now they will start slow with one DC-9 to establish their turbine operation program.

They flew two morning Fuel departures and the same two flew again in the afternoon. The majority of them head out to the South away from the city for safety reasons unless winds are strong from the North. The fuelers seem to always stay low on departure unlike the cargo DC-6's which start climbing about midfield.
