'Down days' are days that have no blue sky so you cannot fly. They are really hard days for me and – let me tell you – there are lots of them in Alaska. So whilst I was on the ground I had to find a story. When I flew from Juneau to Haines the flight was operated by an airline called Wings. The young pilot had to do about ten different jobs before she jumped into the plane and flew us and I was impressed at how efficient and happy she was while she was working.

So I called up the airline and asked if I could very quickly arrange a story about the two girl pilots that fly the Wings planes. It was great to meet up with Jamee and Gabi – both of them started flying in a school programme and now they are full-on pilots and fly the planes with great style. Both would like to fly aircraft with skis on the wheels so they can land in the snow, on glaciers or on the ocean.

My colleagues Sven and Tobi joined me on a short sightseeing trip piloted by legendary pilot Drake - his motto being "more bang for the buck" and that is exactly what we got! Hard rock music playing in our headsets and views we will never forget.

Other than that memorable excursion we meet up with TimTom our lead guide and discussed the weather and snow situation and what aspects we would like to work on for the next trip out. More updates soon!
