(HD) Watching Airplanes Part 2 – Anchorage International Airport PANC/ANC Plane Spotting
This is Part 2 of my Anchorage, Alaska Planespotting Adventure.

North! To Alaska! I bring you a taste of the aviation magic of America’s Last Frontier. I finally made the trip up to America’s 49th state not to hunt for bear or moose (although I did see a moose while spotting here!) but instead to film the many various, diverse aircraft that are plentiful in this part of the world.

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport PANC/ANC is a major airport and mega cargo hub where Boeing 747s and heavy jets are as common as the pine trees and the air is sweet with the fresh of outdoors seasoned with the smell of jet exhaust and hot brakes, … truly a unique airport with a diverse air traffic assortment unlike anywhere else on earth. Everything is here, from the still operational DC-9 and DC-3 to the Dreamlifter to the KC-135 and versatile C-130.

I’ve dreamed for a long time about making a planespotting video from Anchorage International Airport as it is one of those airports that was featured in YouTube videos I used to watch that inspired me to try my hand at other locations around the world besides Chicago O’Hare. Many thanks to the efforts of folks like my good friend Rocknroller92 (youtube.com/rocknroller92) for providing that inspiration and input to ultimately make this video happen.

As usual, I shot all of this without a tripod, two hands only… practice, practice, practice. Even so the stiff, chilly Alaska wind contributes a bit of shakiness to the footage at various points.

Most of the action is arriving and departing PANC/ANC’s 10,900+ ft runway 15 and is taken from Point Woronzof, a spot famous with the locals and many seasoned planespotters. All footage taken September 10-12, 2017.

Either unfortunately or fortunately, I picked the days to film that construction crews were busy re-paving taxiway Yankee (Y) so this adds a lot of background noise to the film.
