John Baker prepares his 1958 Piper PA-18 Super Cub airplane to fly in cold weather in Southcentral Alaska. He briefly mentions Queenie-the-dog’s story of having survived an 800-foot fall from another PA-18 piloted by Cliff Hudson of Talkeetna. Her story is detailed in the July 1967 Alaska Sportsman magazine. Baker also told the story in Arctic Entries (“116 Johnny Baker – Man’s Best Friend” at During a flight through turbulent weather, the 90-pound Queenie had become spooked and agitated, and pushed her way out of an openable side door, falling for several seconds before landing in a patch of snow-covered alders near Black Creek Summit. Cliff Hudson returned to the area where she had fallen as soon as the weather cleared five days later, and found her alive and mostly well, despite being famished and walking with a limp. She healed quickly and went on to live a long and happy life, sharing many adventures with John Baker. This clip includes aerial views of the landscape, moose, and a remote ski landing strip. John Baker filmed the sequence during the late 1960s and added narration in about 2000 (Color/Sound/16mm film). This sequence contains excerpts from AAF-16367 from the John Baker collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks. For more information please contact the Alaska Film Archives.
