File Description:
Attu is AT the western end of the Aleutian chain of islands in Alaska, around 40 miles west of Shemya. There was small village on Attu before the Japanese invasion in mid 1942, but the island is now uninhabited. The Coast Guard Loran navigation station remains in place, though it is no longer in operation and visitors to the island are now either tourists or wildlife experts conducting surveys of numbers of nesting birds, etc. The runway still usable is aligned 02-20 and 5,800 feet long; right hand circuits on 02 to stay away from rising ground to the west. The "terminal" building has lost its sign regarding the Horny Bird, removed in 2010 by one of the last of the station operators, but the building is still there, as are some sheds and shacks that lately were used for the uncomfortable accommodation of bird counters. FS9 has used an incorrect icao identification for Attu but correcting it now would make life complicated so ATU it is and shall remain. I have removed the default FS9 roads that came complete with streetlights and telephone poles and replaced and amended the layout with gravel roads to better resemble real life, though the island shape is at best approximate, as is usual in FS9.
