1985 Northern Discovery Flight
On June 21st, the summer solstice, I took a shuttle back to the airport and flew the plane to the very muddy Inuvik Town airstrip right downtown (ET3, which appears to be closed now), to pick the other guys up. We then continued on another hour along the east side of the Mackenzie Delta to our furthest north destination, Tuktoyaktuk (YUB). The fellow manning the terminal there said that they see very few planes as small as ours. "Tuk" wasn't just the furthest north from my home at Langley, it was the furthest from any experience I'd had before, and I was fascinated by the whole thing.
