About This File
FS2004 Scenery--Byron Bay And Edinburgh Island, Nunavut, Canada. Byron Bay was a DEW line station on the south coast of Victoria Island, 105 miles east of Lady Franklin Point. It closed in 1993. The buildings are still there, slowly accumulating the patina so admired by collectors on Antiques Roadshow. The runway is just over 4500 feet and aligned 58T-238T. At the mid point between Lady Franklin Point and Byron Bay there is a North Warning Site on the highpoint of Edinburgh Island, just south of the closed Ross Point station on the "mainland" Victoria Island. The runway is just over 1400 feet and is also up on the top of the island. There is a steep road down 600 feet to the coast for the annual fuel resupply and maintenance. By Roger Wensley.
