I have flown in a bunch of planes while living in the Alaskan Bush. A Dash 8 is a big plane out there and can only fly into the hubs. I have flown in a 172, 207, Caravan, Navajo, Cherokee 6, Twin Otter, Beech 1900, Metroliner, King Air, Grumman Goose, Beaver, TurboBeaver Amphib and probably some others. Those are only planes that were either a commercial flight or a charter. I also flew in a bunch of stuff my friends and family owned. I have had some scary flights in low visibility and crappy weather into some small gravel strips that got my attention. There are some pretty bad airports in AK. They have tightened up some, but the pilots used to use some pretty creative loading practices with "if it will fit it will fly" packing.
