[Christensen Air Service WACO ZKS-7 aircraft and a hunting trip, Alaska, circa 1940s]
Film footage of Christensen Air Service WACO ZKS-7 aircraft and a hunting trip, Alaska, circa 1940s. The footage begins with several shots of a Christensen Air Service ZKS-7 (tail number NC2335) on the ground, in flight, and taxiing across the snow on skis. Also included are views of mountains and tundra, and shots filmed from inside the aircraft in flight. Two men are present in some scenes, one of whom is likely Hakon Christensen, operator of Christensen Air Service. At 00:04:14, two ZKS-7s and a Stinson SR Reliant are shown in flight; each of the aircraft is fitted with a different type of landing gear: wheels, pontoons, and skis. This is followed by several shots of ZKS-7 aircraft landing and performing spins in a marsh, landing on a body of water, and flying over a field. The aircraft's tail number, NC2335, is visible in the marsh scenes.
The next segment, which begins at 00:01:16, features short clips from a hunting a trip, showing a group of men capturing and trussing a caribou. The caribou is then loaded onto an unidentified Star Airways aircraft.
The footage is in color and is silent.
