Amchitka is correct. Amchitka consisted of three separate airstrips. The one pictured is the most northerly and the smallest, The photo was taken looking ENE toward Constantine Harbour.

Fascinating looking at the airfields now on Amchitka, how well preserved the layout is underneath the snow.

To warmer climes for the next challenge.

JENKINS, I was going to suggest something a bit smaller - a glider?

If, by "Frightener" you mean the B170, it seems to me that the wings are a bit too close to the ground. Apologies if you are referring to something else.

Upon closer inspection, I see a round engine and a three-bladed prop, so I’ll take back my glider and substitute a Model 10 Electra?

Somewhere in the US?

Ahha Jenkins - I did have some shots of Parnamiri, but have kept them for another time.

Not in Brazil or Peru.

It may be a trick of the light, but I think that there is a big clue as to the country in the last image I posted.

Is the aircraft in the "hangar" perchance a B-18?
