Everett A. Long, was a founding member of the Interior and Arctic Alaska Aeronautical Foundation, which established the Alaskaland Pioneer Air Museum in Fairbanks. In June 1990, he became the first American pilot to fly his own airplane (Cessna 172), along the ALSIB route from Fairbanks to Yakutsk. Since 1980, he has been actively writing articles on the air pioneers of Alaska and the Arctic for his own weekly column in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, aviation news publications, and magazines. He directed two searches for the Soviet airplane, N-209 (Commander Sigizmund Levanevsky) which had been missing since August 12, 1937 during the flight from the USSR (Moscow) to the USA (Fairbanks). One search was north east of Old Crow, Northwest Territories, Canada, and the other was through the ice pack off shore of Oliktok point on the North Coast of Alaska. His article concerning the searches for Levanevsky's plane was published in the "Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine".
