Snowhog revisit Eielson Afb Alaska

A10s were stationed at Eielson Afb in Alaska until 2007. It was time for a revisit.

A flight from Vancouver (CYVR) to Eielson AFB (PAEI) gives a great opportunity for some shots of the amazing scenery!
Had a short technical stop at Juneau. Approach from the south over Juneau city and right downwind to rwy 08.
