This Tracker is ex US Navy BuNo 144725. It was stored at MASDC in 1980 and sold to Terrance Cosgrove in 1995 as N8115V. It is said to have sustained damage in a landing accident (brake fire?) at Wasilla, AK. It was moved to Big Lake in late 2000 or early 2001 and was stored there as a restoration project with props and fin missing. It was still there in similar condition by May 2012, but its current status is unclear.

This C-47A was delivered to the USAAF in Feb 1944. Later struck of charge and transferred to the United States Air Force Museum in Apr 1961. It has been on display in Alaska ever since, initially on loan to the Alaska Air National Guard Museum at Kulis ANGB, and since the early 1980s to the Alaska Historical and Transportation Museum near Palmer, AK. In 1992 this museum changed its name to Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry (MATI) and moved to its current location at Wasilla Airport, taking this C-47 with them.

This C-47 served with the USAAF from Jul 1942 until transferred to the CAA/FAA in Oct 1945. Initially registered as NC5, then N5 and since 1973 as N99. In Jul 1977 it moved on to the US Forest Service as N101Z, but they never used it. The registration was cancelled in May 1982, and by 1989 it was stored at Palmer, AK in complete condition and still in full FAA markings with FAA logo. In the mid 1990s it was acquired by the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry (MATI) and moved to Wasilla, AK for display. Unfortunately its current condition leaves much to be desired.

Philippine Mars is being readied for its launch into Sproat Lake, a time-consuming operation. The four TimberWest guys put the huge size of this flying boat into proportion. The photo shows this aircraft's uncommon side drop doors (two on each side), which sistership Hawaii Mars does not have. It has the more conventional system with dropping doors in its belly. This photo was taken 10 days before this aircraft's 60th birthday, and during what would be its final fire-fighting season. This amazing machine was withdrawn from use at the end of the 2006 fire season.

John Reffett bought this Flying Boxcar in April 1989. A failing engine resulted in an emergency landing at Port Lions, AK in July 1989, and the aircraft was abandoned there for many years. In 2002 it was restored to flying condition and flown to Palmer on 4 Nov 2002. It is seen here in storage with engine #1 missing and still fitted with a Westinghouse J34 jet pod.

Owner John Reffett flew this Flying Boxcar from Anchorage to Palmer on 12 Oct 2001, with the intention of using it for cargo flights. However, the aircraft never flew again, despite John's efforts. On 10 Dec 2014 this aircraft did three high-speed taxi runs at Palmer, and at the time the first post-restoration flight was expected "very soon". But by 2018 it still hadn't materialised...

The Evangel 4500-300 was built by the Evangel Aircraft Corp of Orange City, IA from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. It is a STOL design intended for bush operations, notably for use by missionary aviation groups providing humanitarian services to remote locations in South America. Only eight were built, and a 9th airframe was never completed. The one seen here is the prototype c/n 001. It has "Golovin" written on the wingtip, referring to Golovin, AK where it once served. This aircraft has been an Alaska resident for many years, but it was registered to Jim Salazar from Pasadena, CA on 25 April 2018, and may by now have moved south.
