Congratulations to subscriber Chris Beck, who submitted this photo in the contest to win the Alaska Airlines book from Cliff & Nancy Hollenbeck. Â Chris was on his way out to Adak on Alaska Airlines when he snapped this beautiful pic of a small part of the Aleutian Chain!Â
This beautiful coffee-table edition was commissioned as a gift to each of Alaska’s employees on the occasion of the carrier’s 80th birthday. But it’s an “AvGeek” quality publication–FOR SURE. Lots of aircraft diagrams, maps, old photos and great stories of the many people, places and planes that make up the mosaic that now is today’s Alaska Airlines.
Honorable mention goes out to subscriber Mike Hignite, who documents the creative use of duct tape in First Class. Gotta love that “Alaska Style”. HAHA. PS–That Silverhook Coffee is delicious!
Chris–the Hollenbecks are going to send you a signed copy of the book. Enjoy it. Mike–a hearty “Thank You” for your submission.
You should check out the book–which I found at Costco. Here’s the direct link.
