File Description: Founded in 1942 as an American airbase, Iqaluit is now the capital city of the northern Canadian province of Nunavut. It is the smallest Canadian capital in terms of population and the only capital that is not connected to other settlements by a highway. The airport is of critical importance to the community, especially when ice makes boat travel impossible. At 62 degrees latitude (approx. the same as Yellowknife), Iqualuit offers some of the most severe weather you are likely to encounter at any airport, and has been used for cold weather testing of new airliners.
This version of Iqaluit is a complete rebuild of the default version. Almost all the buildings have been custom modeled based on photos. The design of the terminal building at Iqaluit is one of the coolest I've seen, and was the main inspiration for making this scenery. Due to its complexity many details had to be omitted, but hopefully I was able to at least capture some of its "Yellow Submarine" uniqueness. Ramp lights, fences, ground objects, arrestor cables (non-functional) and all the rest of the usual junk is included. Also Instrument Approach Plates.
