at Alert Airport,
For some weeks in early spring 1975 we flew CH-135s from Alert down along the coast to a place known only as Ho Hum Bay restocking batteries and working out on that thick, old ice, supporting Defence Research Establishment (Pacific), I think. Dropped by Fort Conger, Cape Aldrich, Hazen Lake. Drilled holes through the ice and tried to get the char to bite at something. The char had more luck than we had!
In those days the station consisted mostly of ATCO huts. Comfy enough for the time we were there. I hear it is different now.
