John Makinson pilots a North American AT-6 Texan off the runway at Soldotna Municipal Airport on Wednesday during a day of demonstration flights for Civil Air Patrol cadets. Eight cadets had the opportunity to fly with Makinson. “It was really fun,” cadet Jacob Creglow (not pictured) said. “He did a lot of aerobatic stuff. He did loops and spins and told us about World War II fighter pilot history.” Makinson is chief pilot, flight instructor and director of maintenance for History Flight.
