Aug 31, 2011. Riding in a big plane (two engines!) Usually I get the small planes Cessnas with the wings on top . . . this is a Piper Navaho . . . wings on bottom and in the way of the view : (. So flying around in Lake Clark is not like "regular" airlines. These are air taxis. So mid flight, the pilot might get a call to divert and pick up someone else. We left Lake Clark for Anchorage with 4 souls on board (as they say) and got called to make a pick-up in Illiamna (village of 100-200) to get a family of three who also wanted to go to Anchorage. I have also been on planes where we land to make a pickup and the people being picked up have decided not to go . . . it is very "taxi" like. Illiamna sits on Lake Illimna which is kind of like Lake Erie, I believe.
