I am really loving this cool little plane.
Plenty of power and speed, yet capable of some really low speed landings.
I had a hard time cutting the # of pics down from 35.

A nice flight from Juneau to Yakutat this time.

The Kodiak really is an awesome plane, and for half the price of a Caravan. Once the certification is complete, I imagine that you would see a lot of these in the Bush.

I'm not sure if they haven't already been certified.

Great shots! Juneau is a superb place and the airport is pretty tricky...See attached video of a real take-off Alaska Airlines flys due to the mountains that surround it! :eek:

It really is an awesome Bush Plane Dave, and you show it off so well with your shots. When I get my newer PC up & running again this will certainly by an aircraft that I will get for FS - William "Lionheart" Ortis did an amazing job with it.

Take Care, Mike :)
