In the spring of 1956, the Sno-Freighter was on it’s last DEW Line resupply mission. The Sno-Freighter did not travel alone on these re-supply missions. It typically convoyed with 3-5 Cats as it traversed the 400 mile road that Alaska Freight Lines had built.

The two images below were captured on the same re-supply route, but at different points in the journey.

The image below shows the same point in time, but a different angle. Notice Maurice standing in the khaki colored jacket and tan shoes with his back turned to us. Shortly after this photo, likely that night, the Sno-Freighter would jack-knife and catch fire, ending Alaska Freight Line’s DEW Line resupply mission.
