Aleutian Island WWII History Expeditions- PLANE WRECKS

After our Aleutian Campaign Warbirds In Review Session at Oshkosh this summer, I had many people asking me about how they could be part a Aleutian Island WWII Historical Expedition. And actually, the tour company who handles all the details of our tour was too wrapped with their D-Day events that we did not have a tour scheduled for 2019.  Not anymore.... Alaska Marine Expeditions and I decided this would be a great opportunity to create a special aviation themed history expedition through the Aleutians!

I am happy to announce, due to popular demand, a WWII Battleground Expedition- Plane Wreck tour has been added to the schedule for the summer of 2019!

This tour will have many of the main sights we would normally see but we will spend more time exploring and hunting out wreck sites that we have not gone to before.   Exciting stuff! 

For more information check out the event page and contact me with questions.  In the meantime, here are a few (of thousands) of my favorite shots from our previous trips.   Experience of a lifetime!
