Visiting Dutch Harbor (Home port of Deadliest Catch)

Recommended Posts

Dutch Harbor is a great place if you are looking for a few challenging landings.

Cool shots  Is the airport scenery freeware or payware and is it for FSX, please?

Great shots!

I'd like to know the scenery as well...initially I thought the ship was one featured in the show (which I love), but its a container ship.

Now, if this was payware, and it had some of the crab boats in port and steaming to sea, it would be an instant buy for me!

 

Oh what a cool easter egg I wish someone could throw in flightsim....when you fly over the crabbing grounds they have on the show, you see some of the fleet fishing there, with animated crab pots going over the side...that would be awesome!

Thanks every one. Scenery is Dutch Harbor by Aerosoft and though it is not free, at $16.50 USD it isn't exactly a bank breaker either. Very challenging especially circling as shown in the images.  Alaska used to fly 737s in there, so if you have the Capt Sim 737-200 pack, Milviz, or of course PMDG, you can really have some fun!

Alaska used to fly 737s in (Dutch Harbor)...

 

I'd be interested in how many people could negotiate that "circle to land" flight pattern for runway 31 in one of those planes.  I doubt it's something that could be auto-landed.  It's pretty much "seat of the pants" and can be challenging in a DC-3.
