Historic DC-3 flies Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge Guests
At Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge, we work with Trans Northern Aviation and their fleet of historic Super DC-3 airplanes to transport our guests and supplies from Anchorage to our remote location on the Kvichak River. All our packages include your private charter flight from Anchorage to the lodge and back, allowing us to control your vacation experience beginning in Anchorage.
Alaska has a rich aviation history and for history buffs, a trip in this Super DC-3 is a special experience. The Douglas Super DC-3 were designed as both a cargo and passenger airplane. The first flight of the Super DC-3 took place on June 23, 1949. Learn a little about Trans Northern and their history with Super DC-3s in the video above. For past guests, you may recognize some Alaska Sportsman’s Lodge staff.
Also, you might recognize the same Super DC-3 airplane from its 2011 appearance in the birding movie “The Big Year,” starring Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black.
