Today, I am back at the Fairbanks International Airport for the short flight to Anchorage. Just down this afternoon for a meeting and back again this evening. At least it isn't a 10 hour trip like it was when I travelled to Barrow last week. The trip back to Fairbanks yesterday was the normal 1½ hour trip for the less than 500 mile distance.
This picture was taken yesterday on our approach to Fairbanks from the south. On the Barrow-Fairbanks flight the normal approach is from the north just to the east of the university so this is different. We circled to the west of town and came in over the Tanana River. The airport and Fairbanks is on the upper right of the picture and the university is in the upper-center.
I did get some heavy duty velcro straps for the chains but they are too short as is. Instead of returning them, I will be making some extensions out of 1" webbing and some sturdy "D"-rings which I will attach to the chains. This will not only eliminate the clearance issue but will make them much easier to install. Another post for that project.
