Photo of the Day: Anchorage nose art

Friday, December 7th, 2012

On May 19, 2007, AOPA Pilot editors were literally all over the map–all of us were stationed at airports around the United States to capture images and words for what would become “A Day in the Life of America’s Airports.” Then-Senior Editor Machteld Smith got a plumb assignment: She went to Lake Hood Seaplane Base in Anchorage. The nose art you see here is one of numerous photos taken that day. You can see a slideshow and a video on the website, http://www.aopa.org/pilot/dayinthelife/ ), as well as check out the other locations where we turned up.—Jill W. Tallman
