Driftwood Bay AK23 near Dutch Harbor Alaska ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
This is Driftwood Bay, an Air Force field that is just 13 miles northwest of Dutch Harbor, and was once part of a DEW line station with a road heading up the hill.

In FS9 the stock runway is concrete and if you have a mesh with the hills correctly positioned then the runway sits in a deep hole on the hillside. In fact the runway is gravel, 3,500 feet long and aligned 32/14 next to the beach, which is where I moved it to. The beach, as configured by Ultimate Terrain (and contrary to my previous doubts, UT does cover the Aleutians) is incorrect, in that a marshy area just behind the beach is shown as sea with large indentations in what should be a fairly straight line of sand. However, this does not squeeze AK23 in any way so I left it; consider it to be a spring high tide. There is very little at AK23 beyond a gravel runway and a windsock and the AI is an Alaska State Troopers Piper Super Cub from Dutch Harbor, presumably monitoring the numerous Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge areas.
