These guys at Hope Bay Mining know how to make an ice runway. At 7500’ long, it’s fully equipped with lights, PAPIs, and a GPS approach. It allows larger aircraft to supply the gold mine for the months of March through May. Aircraft that use it include the Hercules, Electra, and the Boeing 737-200.
