Hi I am devolping a quiz about everything Alaska Aviation. I will try to keep everything Commercial, and no crazy-hard questions like the tail registration of all of Era's Dash-8's.

I would love to have an all out commercial aviation quiz but the subject is too wide, thus i created a quiz over a small section of commercial aviation because it is the one i know the best. i encourage people to create quizzes over subjects that they know best.


Anyway heres how this will work. I will start by asking a question worth 1 point. all questions are worth one unless said otherwise. now since i have school during the day i cant check this all the time so please if you have a decent question feel free to ask it. if you have answerd a question that you know is correct and there is no one to update the post you may give youself the proper amount of points and start a new question.

have fun

True or false-Alaska was one of the many airlines who ordered 747's.

Still the owner and President, but doesn't fly the runs any longer and has turned over day to day operations to his Son.

True, definitely true. Later cancelled. You can read it in the book called "Alaska Airlines, A History" or some such. I have the book at home - so I can't look it up for you . . .

Question:

AS ever operate a PBY or a Grumman Goose. True or False?

True on both counts, picked up in the aquistions of Alaska Coastal and Ellis Airlines.....This was back before Wrangel and Ketchikan had airports.

I guess I have to come up with one....

True or False the last four course radio range in the US was decommisioned at Cold Bay Alaska.

I'll guess True . . . I can't seem to find a list of when the stations were decommissioned . . .

This is probably a trick question though . . .

It was OTZ-OME. Back in the early 90's, I think, they flew it for a few weeks at the request of AS for some such reason.

But I think that might have been too hard,

The correct answer is Northway Alaska.

Sorry can't give you credit for that. The aircraft in the Post/Roges crash wasn't the Winne Mae, it was a Lockheed Sirus on floats.

When he flew through southeast on the way up a lot of the old timers thought he couldn't fly floats because his eyepatch and lack of depth perception.

But anyway it is true.

During his Round the World flight in the Winnie Mae he folded a main landing gear on the plane at Flat. He ended up repairing it and was able to successfully complete the flight.

Ok, What future US Army Air Corps general was in charge of laying the telegraph cable between Ft Egbert in Eagle to Valdez.

Merlin Express operated the Metroliner operation for Yute. Somewhat like Air Midwest operates "Mesa Airlines" flights.
