An Alaskan Update from Joy Smith

I love getting updates from our pilots so I couldn’t have been happier when I received a nice email with a few pictures from one of our own, Joy Smith, of Alaska. Joy moved to AK from McCall, Idaho the summer of 2010 and is based at a private airstrip that is very isolated. This is one lady who is passionate about her flying! She loves Alaska but being isolated, tells me how much she misses the fun flying in the lower 48. Joy has a couple of GREAT taildraggers, a Supercub and a Cessna 180 Skywagon.

“Thought I would send a few photos of my Cub and I from a few flying trips of the past year. Enjoy your postings. LLT became a very active group just as I moved to Alaska.”

Flying home through the Alaska Mountains

“I enjoy Alaska very much for the long winter and Nordic skiing, my other passion. Thanks for your great work with LLT. Also thanks for choosing my Supercub to be the representative Supercub in your posting about what the ladies are flying.”

At Birchwood, AK to visit a friend

“Look forward to getting to some flyins when I move back South.”

Merry Christmas,
Joy Smith

    Merry Christmas Joy! Watch out for the bears on the west side of Cook Inlet! How do you like your skis? Hope to see you in Idaho/Utah this coming summer.

    Maybe one day I’ll fly to Alaska too!

    Stay warm and light up the night skies with some fire!
