Notes
Leg 26 of Going Commando in Alaska. Leave Pitka and head for Buckland. Edward G. Pitka Sr Airport covers an area of 1250 acres at an elevation of 153 feet above mean sea level. It has two runways: 7 and 25 is 7249 by 150 feet with an asphalt and concrete surface. 6 and 24 is 2786 by 80 feet with a gravel surface. The airport also sports a ski jump takeoff ramp at one end and provisions for arresting gear at the other a leftover from the Cold War years as Galena Air Force Base as tactical aircraft required more landing and takeoff space than was available on the runway.
