About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Attu ATU In Aleutians, Alaska (AK), USA. Attu is at the far western end of the Aleutian chain of islands in Alaska, around 40 miles west of Shemya. There was a small village on Attu before the Japanese invasion in mid 1942, but the island is now uninhabited. The Coast Guard Loran navigation station remains in place, though it is no longer in operation and visitors to the island are now either tourists or wildlife experts conducting surveys of the numbers of nesting birds, etc. The runway still usable is aligned 02-20 and 5,800 feet long; right hand circuits on 02 to stay away from rising ground to the west. The "terminal" building has lost its sign regarding the Horny Bird, removed by one of the last of the station operators in 2010, but the building is still there, as are some sheds and shacks that were last used (and perhaps still are?) for housing bird counters.
