These are villages in Alaska, spread out east and west of Dutch Harbor in the Aleutians and the peninsula, served by Grant Aviation regional flights from Dutch Harbor, Cold Bay, or King Salmon.
Nikolski is 115 miles west of Dutch Harbor at the western end of Umnak Island, which is just west of Unalaska, the large island adjacent to Dutch Harbor. Nikolski is small, with a population of perhaps only 20 now, and the main claim to fame is the wrecked Reeve Aleutian DC3 at the end of the runway. The runway is 3,500 feet of gravel aligned 08-26. Nelson Lagoon is on the north shore of the peninsula, 55 miles north of Sand Point and on a long spit of land that curves around to make the lagoon. There is no access except by boat or plane for the population of around 50. The airfield is a mile east of the village with a gravel runway 08-26, 4,000 feet long. Perryville is on the south shore of the peninsula, 65 miles east of Sand Point. The population is around 115, and the airfield is southwest of the town with the 3,500 feet of gravel runway aligned 02-20 beside the shore. There is a hangar on the apron, but no terminal building.
