FS2004 Scenery--Cape Parry (CWCP) in NW Territories, Canada. This is a DEW line Main Station on the shore of the Canadian mainland at the far northern tip of Cape Parry. It is 60 miles north of Paulatuk at the base of the Parry Peninsula, and 120 miles south of Sachs Harbour on Banks Island. The station ceased operations in 1989 and a North Warning System automated station was opened in the same year; the NWS station is not shown in this scenery as I have no information regarding its location or layout. The runway is just over 5000 feet of gravel 150 feet wide, aligned 037T at an elevation of 119 feet ASL. There is a large apron with a large hangar and a small shelter building for passengers. There are of course no lights, signage, or windsock. By Roger Wensley.
