Cold Bay

Once a thriving air base and then a refueling stop for transpacific flights, Cold Bay has shrunk to about 70 folks. Been there quite a bit lately, as that is where PenAir goes when they can't get into Dutch Harbor / Unalaska.

Cold Bay's claim to fame is their huge runways. Two 9,000 foot cross wind with full ILS and CAT III.

Volcanoes abound

On approach to Cold Bay, Mt. Pavlov is a beautiful sight. She is a fairly active volcano rising 8200 feet. She lies about 35 miles east of Cold Bay.
The highest point in the Aluetians is Shishaldin Volcano, a National Natural Landmark, and 9000 feet high.
