Photo Comment

Two classic C119 Freighter aircraft sit on the Ramp at Palmer under clear skies with a wonderful setting of Snow covered Mountains behind. Built in 1952 and 1953 these two Boxcar's are still Airworthy and capable of serving some of the 260 Villages in the Alaskan Bush that have no road access to the Highways.
