The Spirit of Alaska — Southern Alaska [Part 1]

Hello!

So I’m back again in this category. Woah! Sorta comes and goes I guess, sometimes I’m here almost everyday making screenshots, sometimes I’m not. Either way, I’m here with some photos, of course! So today, I’m starting a new series, called “The Spirit of Alaska.” I’ve gone up to Alaska — and for that matter, up to 70,000 feet as well. Fun fact, Alaska is my second favorite state (After NC and it’s airport KCLT). Anyway, I came here to showcase the pure beauty of the state of Alaska (Which I think I’ve done before, but not to this extent). From mountains, to lakes, rivers, to tundra, all of which are in Alaska. So now how I did this. I took an F-22 to 70,000 feet, went to freecam, and got a photo of the scenery. Then, I took a plane, made it a transparent image, then pasted it on top of the scenery photo. Now that is photoshop, but everything in these photos are features in IF, so I believe it follows the guidelines. Anyway, enough of my lecturing, let’s see some photos!



My first photo, takes us to the southern panhandle of Alaska — the Juneau area to be exact. This A320 in Alaska’s new livery, flies over the mountains, rivers, forests, and every other type of landform in the area.


Although this isn’t a photo of the main tundra up far north, a (smaller) flat area of land (it’s not a tundra, it’s a tiny area of land) is shown below this Alaska CRJ-700. The rivers, towns/cities, and even the mountains in the background are all shown in this photo. And the ocean is (barely) visible!


This is my favorite of these photos, an Alaska 737-800 banks over the mountains of the Alaska Peninsula. You can see 2 lakes in this photo, snow, forests, and even the ocean! Another example of Alaska’s diverse landscape.


Like I said earlier, this is a series so expect part 2 coming soon!

Great pictures of Alaska! I’m excited for the next parts!!

Part 2 would look amazing if Alaska had its mountain ranges like Denali

Thank you so much, means a lot, @PilotDog! And yes, if only we had 3D scenery way up north, it would be amazing to fly over.

Cool! 😁

I’m still not used to seeing Alaska airlines 737’s with winglets. I’m still used to seeing their 737-400’s. But that’s just me. 😉

Thanks, @ClassicAirlinerLover! I love the 737-400’s and even the -200’s as well, too bad they’ve been retired.


Thanks so much, @Armani_B! Yes they are fun roles up there in Alaska. Bush flights, Airliner flights, all are just awesome. PM me if you would like to go Alaska Flyin’ with me.


I totally agree, @RotorGuy. If we had all the mountains it would be so much better. Maybe one day!


I wish I got to fly on one. But hey, still a chance it’ll come to IF one day. And thanks as well, @Key!


Thanks so much, @Mr-plane-guy1! And I certainly will keep it up, part 2 coming to an IFC location near you.
