    I watched this show last Friday evening, the Tweto’s daughter who works the ramp, cracked me up with some of her comments. The contaminated fuel problem they had at Barrow was interesting. Never realized it was a family run operation till I saw the show.

      Thanks Brian. I found that interesting about the family too, controlling other parts of the Era operation. I am not sure how the ownership of the new “Era Alaska” works out but it is like an umbrella name with several same-owner companies now using the same name. They are all connected under the Frontier Alaska Group ownership. Maybe one of our readers can clarify this for us.

    Watching your show brings back memories of my tour of duty (USAF) in 1956 at the AC & W site at Unalakleet. My TACAN site (navigational aid) was physically located at the village. From your show, it seems to be larger than when I was there. I also performed duties at Galena, Barrow, Fort Yukon, Northway and Kotsubue.
