at Kulusuk airport Eastern Greenland.
Most of the planes that land here
are from Iceland, they are generally 2 propeller
high wing aircraft as this one. The 2 hour
or less flight time means that it is possible
to take a day trip or one or two night trip
from Iceland to get a taste of Greenland.
The airport is
at Kulusuk despite it being a very small place
whereas the nearby Ammassalik / Tasiilaq , the
largest settlement in Eastern Greenland, has
no airport, just a heliport that receives visitors
ferried from Kulusuk. The reason is that Kulusuk
was the site of an American early warning station
from the cold war now abandoned, but still has
the airstrip that was built to service the station.
