I flew that weekend as the Navigator with the Alaska Air National Guard. Starting with the second flight on Saturday the 28th I took pictures with a small 35 MM camera.

At 5:30 PM I was on the second floor of the National Bank of Alaska (I worked there as a banker). I received activation and reported to Kulis AFB (Anchorage Int’l) … from there we flew in a C-123J to Elmendorf where we picked up soldiers as no word was received of conditions down on the gulf. All electric navigation and radio was down with bad weather. No camera on the first flight.
