FS2004 Scenery--Cape Young (CWCY) in Nunavut, Canada. Cape Young was a DEW line station on the northern mainland coast 50 miles northwest of Kugluktuk, and 50 miles west of Lady Franklin Point. It closed in August 1993. Most of the buildings are still there, in various shades of decay. The runway is also still there and close to 5000 feet of gravel in length, aligned and signed 110T/290T, though on the ATC it will be called 07/25 as FS2004 knows nothing about the Canadian Northern Domestic Airspace. There is no runway lighting, and don't be surprised if there are bushes growing amid the gravel. By Roger Wensley.
