About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Saglek CYSV in northern Labrador, Newfoundland Canada. Kangiqsualujjuaq is in northern Quebec on the east side of Ungava Bay, and the rocky coastline stretches north from there for 130 miles before turning sharply to head south as the Atlantic shore of Labrador. On this shore and 120 miles almost due east of Kangiqsualujjuaq is Saglek, once a US radar base as part of the DEW line, and then a Canadian base with a Long Range Radar sited 1,200 feet above the airstrip on the top of the vertical cliff. The airstrip is still in use today as an access to the Torngat Mountains Canadian National Park area further north, with organised summer camps and walks etc and helicopter relays from airstrip to campsites. There is no signage. Saglek closes the gap between my post of Kangiqsualujjuaq and the string of airfields further south on the Labrador coast, such as Nain, Davis Inlet, Hopedale, Makkovik, and Postville etc. These have all been made by Flight Ontario and posted along with the Goose Bay Air Base, which also functions as a civil airport. The video starts at Saglak and shows some of the buildings and the hilly surroundings. By Roger Wensley.
