FS2004 Scenery - Sand Point (PASD), in Aleutians, Alaska (AK), USA.
Sand Point is in the eastern third of the Aleutian chain of islands in Alaska, on Popof Island about 85 miles east of Cold Bay. The town has a population of around 1,000 and its economy is solidly based on fishing. There is, in the town, a fish processing plant owned by Trident (their largest plant is in Akutan, east of Dutch Harbor and close to the new airport at Akun) and the area close to the airport is used for crab pot storage etc. The single runway is aligned 13-31 (with right hand circuits on 13) and 6,000 feet long. There are scheduled flights by Grant Aviation to neighbouring local airfields and flights to and from Anchorage by Peninsula Air (included in the AI posted with Adak) and the Coast Guard also make occasional visits. Typical weather in the video again.
