No, not Perm.

In the 70's interceptor aircraft were based here.

Tourist connection north of Sakhalin!?!?!?!?! Must be Polar Bears on hols or visitors to the salt mines!
Irkutsk for the Trans Siberia Railway? Too far for interceptors to be based, though think they're built there?

mr ripley

Yes ! Well done. I'm so glad someone has got it. I was begining to lose the will to live.

Khatanga Airport. Next stop to the North Pole is Sredny Ostrov Airport some 893 kms further north.

You have control.
