This aircraft was ending its very last flight by performing a low pass over the runway. It arrived from FAI via YZF to become a permanent exhibit at the Sola Aviation Museum, wearing the full Braathens SAFE livery. This very aircraft flew for Braathens between 1962 and 1971, and is the last remaining of the DC-6's operated by Braathens. Onboard was the winner of the 2020 Iditarod, Thomas Waerner, who had been stuck in Alaska for months because of Covid-19. [Nikon D7100 + Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII]

She had a long life, and was from a wonderful time. I know I am saying this to an inanimate object, but, “Thank you for your service, dear lady.”
