Seeking Historical Sectional Charts - Alaska, 1972
Votes
Answered By AOPA
Hey gang,
Random weird question. Anyone know a way to find an Anchorage, AK sectional chart from 1972? I'm trying to verify some Victor airways in the area back then for a research project.
Thanks!

Hi Andrew,

I searched and searched, including going down a rabbit hole at the library of congress of really old sectionals (which was pretty cool), but there were no older Alaska sectionals to be found. You may want to check with Alaska DOT, or the Alaskan Airmen's Association, they may have a line on the older charts you're looking for. You may also want to check with the FAA's charting office as well.

Yes indeed. Specifically the victor airway heading to the SouthEast from Anchorage towards Whittier. I’m looking for proof if it was 317 or 319 back then. I also sent you a private message here with details. Thanks so much!

Are you interested in the area around the city of Anchorage?

A scan or clear picture would be amazingly helpful! I would really appreciate that.

I have an Anchorage sectional dated July 20, 1972.  I won't part with it, but I can send scans of the areas you're interested in.
