Update 7-19-11 I found this about the above airplane. (Web Page) Go about half way down or just search for the tail numbers to see the write up. Here's a link to the photo's of the plane being moved through Fairbanks back in 2003. (Pictures)
Which brings us to Friday's portion of the journey, we came into Fairbanks from Tok. (Map) We decided to spend 3 nights here which was a much needed break from the continuous travel we have experienced since leaving California. Saturday we went out and visited the Alaska pipeline. They have a great viewpoint that is right beside the highway leading north of town. We have lots of pictures which I will try to get posted later today. We also stopped by the Northstar golf course. (website) My hip is still messed up so I didn't get a chance to play but the course sure looks interesting. The scorecard has a checklist so you can keep track of what animals you see during your round. The most unusual thing we saw was the above pictured airplane. It was just sitting beside the road while we were driving around looking for the golf course. The numbers on the tail are N12347 so if anybody knows anything about the history of this plane please post it in the comments.
