File Description:
Koyukuk is a small village on the northern bank of the Yukon River, around 5 miles east of where the river turns from north-south to east-west, east being upstream towards the distant Fairbanks. The mouth of the Koyukuk River that joins the Yukon is just to the east of the village. The population is now under 100 and living from fishing and the land. During the late 1800's the local population lived off the land and also by the spin off from gold mining in the same way as the nearby Nulato, but when in the early 1900's gold mining activities moved to Nome and Fairbanks local prosperity plunged. In fact, the village only became a permanently inhabited establishment in 1939, when a school was built. The airfield is close by and has a gravel runway aligned 6-24 and 4,000 feet long with PAPI on the approach to 6. There is also a shorter and parallel grass runway that is only used in the winter snows by light planes that are on skis and without wheels. Apart from the airfield itself, and it's buildings, this scenery modifies the local land class, adds village buildings while reducing the village size to reality, and creates a new airfield background. Koyukuk is served by Wright Air from Fairbanks in the east and this is included in the AI provided with the post of Nulato. A note here about my scenery making. This is post number 509 and there will not be many more to follow this as I am almost at the end of the photos I either took or found for scenery purposes. There is a limit to what can be located online and I have already been making use of the little there is; eg Unalakleet. So, if you are near an airport (preferably Canadian or Alaskan) and have a camera..... Let me know.
