I have asked my Alaskan controller buddies in Alaskan FIR division of VATUSA of Vatsim if they would provide ATC coverage for this awesome event.

I am planning to use Mountain Air 727 or I am thinking of 737-200 Combi as it happened in real life. Maybe BAE146-100 too as it happened in real life.

Check out those videos of jet operations at PADU

Awesome approach to PADU:

Did practice run for PADU runway 13 and I have to warn all of you that the approach to PADU runway 13 is very difficult to land with 20kt winds using 737-200 to recreate real world historic flight. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Almost ran out of runway but managed to stop just before end of runway :shock: :shock: :shock:

I think slower prop plane would be easier.
