Going to extremes.

I took this photo yesterday, June 27th. Two brothers, Duane and Larry Jefts, in two CTLSs are flying from Tucson AZ to Barrow AK — the extreme northernmost point in the United States. Here you see them at Friday Harbor Airport doing their preflight inspections, topping off, and waiting for the fog to clear. They arrived the day before from Las Vegas. They departed late yesterday morning and made it all the way to Juneau AK, with a fuel stop in Ketchikan. They flew non-stop from Friday Harbor to Ketchikan. They have six weeks set aside for this trip. Follow them on their SPOT Satellite Locator Public Page:

About Darryl Swenson

I am a private pilot and amateur photographer. I live in Friday Harbor, Washington. My airplane is a Flight Design CTLS and I keep it in a hangar in Friday Harbor. My flying has taken me up and down the West Coast USA. I am enchanted by the islands and mountains of the Pacific Northwest, and the allure of deserts and mountains of the Southwest keep drawing me back to the Four Corners area.
