File Description:
This is V2, the combined original and also V1. If you have already installed V1 then you do not need this. The town of Seward (population around 2,700) is on the east coast of the Kenai Peninsula, 70 miles east of Kenai town and also 70 miles southeast of Anchorage, amid mountains and glaciers at the northern end of the 20 mile long and fjord-like Resurrection Bay. It is also at the southern end of both the Alaska Railway and the Seward Highway, and has a sheltered dock for freight and also for cruise liners. Passengers from the liners can enjoy local attractions (dog sledging on a glacier?) and also easily continue further north by bus or train to Anchorage or to other tourist attractions such as Denali. The airport is next to the port and the town, with two runways aligned (in FS9, not taking account of the recently wandering magnetic north) 15-33 and 12-30, both asphalt and 2,100 and 4,200 feet long respectively. Only 12-30 (and its taxiways) is lit, with VASI on 30. There are no regularly scheduled flights to Seward; with buses and trains running direct from Anchorage there is no money to be made. There are some charter flights coordinated with cruise liners, and some freight flights, the very occasional visit by the Coastguard, but most flights are GA, air taxi,or short scenery-viewing trips for summer tourists. In a mountainous area the only sure thing about the behaviour of AI aircraft is that it is unpredictable but often involves a mountain; nothing to be done about it. At Seward there is also marine AI from and to the port, in the shape of a cruise liner and an Alaskan ferry, but the latter only if you have Holger Sandmann's Alaska scenery installed. Also included with this is a correction for Fire Island 6AK5, near Anchorage, that takes the airfield out of the water; this is something I have meant to do for the last 5 years.
