Most heavier aircraft use 23 to land in Alert, but once in a while they’ll come in on 05. Especially when there is a fog bank sitting at the foot of 05. Here comes a boxtop flight, landing on Runway 05.
The Air Inuit charter has landed on 05 a couple times. The last time they did, I thought they were going to go over the threshold! He was coming in very fast. It is a completely different view on 05 than 23, with the hill right there on the approach. It is just ocean on the approach to 23.
It was so nice of the Boxtop crew to bring up some sunshine with them. I haven’t seen this much since I arrived here, way back in May.
