FYU airport-0254

Skies are clear but low fog obscures the flight line just after Wright Air lands. It is cold, 53/47 below. Rides line up to collect passengers and help unload the cargo. This may all seem primitive, but really, this is easy flying. You can arrive five minutes before your flight if you want and you don’t have to take your shoes off for anybody. You can step off your plane and into your car without struggling through a terminal. Collecting your luggage is practically instantaneous, and traffic? There are never seen more than a dozen cars in your way. Hey, we don’t even have to make reservations; if there are open seats, they’re yours. And best of all, you don’t pay until you arrive in Fairbanks so your flight is free if you don’t make it to Fairbanks! 🙂
