Vintage aviation photos by Martin ('JoeJoe') Prince Jr

H-Marker Lake, Alaska - JoeJoe Prince (24Jul21)

Martin 'Joe Joe' Prince Jr lives in Bethel,AK and in 2006 he started to send me some photos for use on my website.
Since they also an offer an insight in the planes that visit such a remote community in Alaska, I like to share them here for other propliner and vintage bushplanes enthusiasts to enjoy.

JoeJoe's introduction:
"I live in Bethel, Alaska (about 400 miles west of Anchorage). Here are some pictures of mine, mainly taken here at Bethel. I was looking at your website and saw some planes in there that I had photographed and thought you might like!"

This page 3 was started in August 2022.
