Ah, the moon! Atlas Air B747 has just arrived at the designated parking space, and seems to start enjoying the moon rise while refueling. Southern Air B.747 (N746SA) parks behind. Setting sun illuminates the peaks of mountains beautifully whereas the ground does not completely turn dark which is usually the case of snow. I wish you could smell the holy atmosphere that I felt at the moment. In a reality, I think it might be a good idea to take my way back now before the road will completely freeze again.

I dont think we can say thank you enough to these guys that post these beautiful photos. PANC looks similar in FS2004 as it does in real life. I have never been there, but I can always visit thanks to you guys and your unselfish posting of wonderful photos.
Greets.
And Thank you.

The lighting is particularly attractive. With the moon present it adds to the composition.
Besides, I've always been a 747 fan! :-)

The contrast of time immemorial with the sun on the mountains as the background to the modern world I think is wonderful, congratulations.

Jean, you just did an excellent picture, that fills me with a former era where many Europeans flights stopped here en route to Asia. Hope to get there again one day, are the polarbear and bison still inside?

I think that this picture should be higher rated because of the sun setting and the planes in between the mountains loading or unloading the cargo of this boeing 747-200 atlas air with a southen air boeing 747 behind the plane.
