Alaska’s Bush Planes


It is no wonder that the Bush plane is an icon of the Last Frontier. Alaska has approximately six times as many pilots and fourteen times as many airplanes per capita as the rest of the United States. The Bush plane is a critical method of transportation for supplies and passengers in this vast state as well as a spectacular way to tour the majestic landscape. Loaded with stunning photos by Alaska’s best-known landscape photographers, this book is a perfect choice for Alaskan visitors and aviation enthusiasts.



“Beautiful photos make this a must-keep book. Alaska is a beautiful state and the airplanes which make travel practical throughout this rugged part of the world. Many of these aircraft are rarely seen in the lower 48 so this is definitely an opportunity to see some of these classic machines.” ~James D. Crabtree, Amazon Vine Voice

“An absolutely stunning view of Alaska, as seen by various skilled, artistic photographers who followed many bush planes to places seldom visited by humans, to capture glorious images of small—and not so small—aircraft stitching Alaska together.” ~Bob Merrick, COPA Flight
