I'm guessing it's the Fairway Rock, which I spotted on a flight out to the Diomede Islands...

 

From a distance it looked like a ship - but the 'wave' was pretty cool too... :)

I spoke of this "waterberg" but didn't post pic. All the Diomede's area is buggy (misplacements from the map, low res. textures, no autogen). The "wave" is static and quite high ! If it was a tsunami, would be impressive !!...

 

It would be cool if there was such icebergs, with the right textures of course, moving in the right places :)

@JC - yeah - it was a static wave - I checked the location on Googlemaps and reckon the mesh has lifted up over the untextured Fairway Rock

 

@DM - If we had gigantic animated icebergs then we'd all be insisting they roll over every now and then. It would certainly make landings on them more interesting...

This is the location that scenery ended being built for Flights Alaska pack. I have a flight I started yesterday in the Redtail following this line at 70 degrees,then it made a right angle to 340 degrees and I am still following it. I stopped last night due east of PAKT and will continun again sometime today. I am taking screen shots along the way of things that stand out to me. this is a shot I took at the point that I stopped at yesterday.
