Interesting article from the Alaska Journal of Commerce. I didn't know that NAC had purchased these 732's from DL.

I'd be surprised if NAC used the 737's to completely replace the DC-6's. When I was flying out of Fairbanks, I'd see the -6's in the most unlikely spots; Venetie, Huslia, Ambler, Beaver etc. Most of those runways simply would not accept a 737, especially with the low-slung engines on the 'guppy'. I'm sure they have a replacement in mind for those locations, but I'd bet a lot that it isn't the 737.

You know, that leads me to wonder if these 732's will be gravel-kitted, similar to what AS did with some of their combis.
