    Default Anybody know of a modern biplane in ANC area?

    Hi Guy's , anybody know of a Bi-Plane in the ANC area that i might get a ride in? I'd be happy to cover all expenses. I'm not looking to do any wild stuff just a mild ride, I've never been in one and curious about open cockpit flying. Thanks.

    I used to rent a Great Lakes biplane back in the late 70's but that's long gone. There was a Northern Air Cargo pilot in Anchorage who gave biplane rides. I think he had a Waco, don't know if he's still doing or not. If you want to take a scenic trip north there is a guy here in Fairbanks who gives rides in a really nice N3N.

    I don't know anything about this, but might be worth a call: http://luxergy.com/Anchorage_Alaska/...lane_rides.htm

    Luxergy appears to be a tour consolidator- middleman. Sometimes they have the connections you seek, other times not.

    Was in Fairbanks yesterday picking up a plane and noticed two war birds sitting on the East ramp. One was a bi-plane. Sign by them stated call for rides.

    Whatever happened to the AN-2 at Merril? That would be a fun one to fly.
