This Cordova Airlines DC-3 is shown taking off from the Soldotna Airport in 1964. Gov. Bill Egan was on hand for this, the inaugural flight from the airport. These sturdy planes complete with stewardesses operated for almost 10 years flying mostly between Soldotna and Anchorage. In the early 1970s a fatal crash ended Cordova Airlines' flights.
