An introduction to Southern Alaska
Occasionally we all get preconceived ideas about something, which for me was the case with this latest product from Orbx. I imagined that a remote airfield in Alaska would hold very little interest for me, particularly after reviewing some of the largest airports in the world… How wrong I was!
The product in question is the latest release, depicting Valdez Pioneer Field. It’s a small provincial airport in Southern Alaska, just 6km east of the city of Valdez. Although small by global standards, it’s quite an important place. With one of the few ice-free ports in the area, it was cited as an ideal location for the termination of the Trans-Alaska pipeline, which carries oil from the Prudhoe Bay oil fields in northern Alaska.
