What coverage do you have for airports in far northern Alaska?
I found this posted today in an Alaskan web log:
Something is going on at the airport
It is about 2:30 in the morning. The runway lights are lit at the airport - I can see them from my window. There is also some stronger light blinking higher up, which looks like it is from an airplane on the ground. I wonder what is going on.
The airport is Deering, Alaska (Code: DRG). When I enter that airport code (as DRG or KDRG), it returns as an “Invalid” code. Now I, too, am wondering what was going on. I’d guess a plane was on a landing approach, and I bet it wasn’t a VFR flight at 2:30 a.m.
