Hauling… butt on this turn!

Gear down

Hope you liked them!

Juneau always provides a great approach and departure. Nothing beats the Canadian Rockies though. When you’re standing there, they are unbelievable… Look at my profile picture for example. Not even edited, no special camera, just me, my phone, and a massive drop below me.

I’m obsessed with transport (especially aviation) and geography (especially Canada).

Juneau is my favorite Alaskan airport, thanks for flying there! I can see you enjoyed the scenery. Great photos too. (The second turning photo is better)


On a side note: The airport 3-letter (IATA) code is JNU, not AJN. The PA in the 4-letter (ICAO) is because the A is for Alaska. Just like in Hawaii it is PH. Sooooo, I’m disturbed for some weird reason that it says AJN instead of the proper JNU, but whatever, it’s up to you to change it, not me.

Wow, those are such great pictures! The best I’ve seen in a while actually.

I’m sorry I couldn’t make it; I had a Civil Air Patrol meeting to get to. I’d be glad to fly with you sometime soon!
