Inuvik, NWT Photos

This was my first experience flying in the Midnight Sun. On June 21, 1985, I flew my Cessna 172, C-GWDM, from the very muddy Inuvik Town strip to Tuktoyaktuk and back to the main Inuvik airport, arriving in broad daylight a few minutes before midnight. This photo was taken on the way south to Inuvik just after 11:00pm. I was very surprised to see that the sun didn't come anywhere near the horizon - I got a photo of the flags at the airport backlit by the sun.
