Interesting dam video!

In 1967, Fairbanks suffered a catastrophic flood. In response, the Army Corps of Engineers built a really dam nice system and spillway to divert excess water from the Chena River when it's high. I have driven by this dam and spillway many times, but never knew quite exactly now it was laid out. There are some dam nice aerial views in this video:

And that's a dam cool contraption that guy is flying in!

Really nice video, thanks. Not interested in that thing the guy was flying in, it can malfunction, the wind can blow him off track. Even a bush airplane is probably better, but why risk? Hope Fairbanks people are safe from flood forever.
