Low Flyby Captured At Lake Hood Alaska
Fellow seaplane pilot and friend Jack Jaunbral recently submitted this shot for our Sunday Waterbird Special. This was taken in 2008 at Lake Hood, Alaska. Operating continuously and open to the public, Lake Hood is the world’s busiest seaplane base, handling an average of 190 flights per day. It is located on Lakes Hood and Spenard, next to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, three miles from downtown Anchorage. The base has an operating control tower, and during the winter months the frozen lake surface is maintained for ski-equipped airplanes.
We greatly appreciate picture submissions from our readers as well as companies within the seaplane industry. Please note that we cannot feature (or “just take“) images from Social Media like Facebook, Instagram or other outlets. We also cannot feature images we receive by “Messenger” via Facebook, as the platform will often re-scale images to a size- format we cannot use. Please only submit pictures taken by you personally and give a few lines of information about where and when the picture was taken. Yes, most cellphone pictures are completely fine. To send, simply submit them via Whatsapp to +49 (0) 173 812 4992, together with your name. Submissions are ALWAYS welcome via E-Mail.
