Great trip between these two (remote) Alaskan towns, and lovely scenery, too, Bernd! (Yakutat, has (virtually) almost become my summer-home, as you already know...🙂...)

I understand...it's the Transall C-160D, 5102, of the German Air Force...(had not seen that, in a while)...!!

Thanks for posting!

Wonderful scenery unfolding below this flight. Each scene more eye-popping than the one before.

Lovely set!

Scenery looks great but I am actually more interested in the aircraft you are flying. A quick google and I know now it is a Transall C-160D....also came up with a good video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggMUlQvc2H0

I see there are two sets of throttles and gear levers....what are the levers right in the middle?

Propeller condition (pitch levers)? Just guessing.

EDIT - Yep! Condition levers.

Thank you very much Mark....exactly what I wanted to read.🤓

Given the right photos I would seriously consider simulating this cockpit.😎

Flown between Cordova and Yakutat several times in RL - always along the beaches.  That Malaspina glacier is humungous.  What's that junior Herc you're flying?

That junior Herc (love that name) is a Transall C 160. I flew with it many times, it has been used by many European countries and some still use it today. During the last few years, it was gradually replaced by the larger and more modern Airbus A 400
