Era Alaska - Jim Tweto
"Flying Wild Alaska" 2011 Follows the unconventional Tweto family that rules Alaska's most dangerous skies. Operating their family-run airline, Era Alaska, they battle unforgiving Alaska weather and terrain to transport life's necessities to one of the most remote and extreme regions of America. With no freeway system for hundreds of miles, Era Alaska is the lifeline for the isolated rural inhabitants of the Bering Sea coastline.

The Iditarod Nationa Historic Trail in Alaska was designated in 1978. This 2,200 mile winter trail system first connected prehistoric Native Alaskan villages and became a major settlement route for Gold Rush-era Alaska. It continues to play a vital role in modern-day Alaska. Today, BLM administers this trail as part of the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS).
