About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Sturt Point (CWSP) in Nunavut, Canada. Sturt Point was a DEW Line I Station on the south coast of Victoria Island, 50 miles east of Cambridge Bay. It was closed in 1963. The runway is 3420 feet of gravel aligned 117T/297T, and there are of course no lights, signage, or windsock, and there are large ruts in the gravel. A North Warning System station was built 15 miles inland and closer to Cambridge Bay, operating from 1991 onwards. This has a short (1280'?) gravel runway aligned 138T/318T (and named CWSX here). No ruts in the gravel, but also still no lights, signage, or windsock. All of these DEW line stations are not particularly impressive or even interesting. However, you can bet that any pilot flying regularly in the north along the coast knows where all these runways are, just in case one of them suddenly becomes his favorite in the whole world just after the sudden silence.
