File Description:
This is Mountain View, a small RCAF airfield at the eastern end of Lake Ontario on Prince Edward Island, some 40 miles west of Kingston. Mountain View is used for training during the summer months, and part of this training is for C-130 crews, who practice landing on rough or unprepared landing strips. The crews are based at Trenton, which is a large base 10 miles to the northwest on the mainland. There are (or were, I haven't seen it recently) numerous parked and ancient fighter planes such T-33's and Canadair Tutors; these could also have possibly been used for summer training or perhaps were just stored. Last summer there were only two hangars left standing; in 2002 there were five. In real life you would be on the lookout not only for C-130's but also (at certain times during the summer) for parachutists and also gliders. This airfield is one that you will fly over and not land on; I confess that I have cheated with the length of the 06L-24R gravel "practice" runway, so that it became possible for the FS version of a touch-n-go with a C-130 to be completed without using the grass. The aerial photograph shows the new "practice" gravel runway under construction.
