The one was a trip on the Chena River on the Riverboat Discovery. Expecting just a quiet boat ride, you are surprised by the entertainment and education provided. The first event was the take off and landing of a bush plane on the river by your side.
Off the ground now--or should I say off the river. As in Anchorage, many small planes in Fairbanks boast floats in the summer and skis for winter landings. Their landing strip is the same either way, the Chena River.
This is where I pop in with the SkyWatch notice. You can see lots of other sky views from around the world today linked at the SkyWatch site.
The small plane made several swoops of the area as our commentator talked with the pilot about flying in the bush.
