Description

Though the flight is only a little over 140 miles and, today, can be made in less than an hour, in the early 1950’s the trip between Fairbanks and Fort Yukon was undoubtedly quite a bit more harrowing. A prop plane with an unpressurized cabin would have probably taken at least twice as long, and with significantly less comfort.

Thus it’s with great acclaim that Arnold Mayhack was presented this certificate commemorating his trip across the Arctic Circle, signed by the pilots who flew him there. An accompanying stylized map shows the various points of departure and arrival served by Wien Alaska Airlines, amusingly with an American flag planted at the North Pole. Artwork by Spencer and lithographed in the U.S.A. by Schwabacher-Frey Co.
