A different view.

The island on which this airport is situated has a canine connection. (Loosely ^_^ )

A namesake makes its fortune in the computer biz.

Second clue: The nearby hamlet is named after a ship that was specially outfitted for a particular kind of dangerous and difficult activity. The airport shares the first part of its name with the hamlet, but its full name with a waterway.

Okay; third clue. A major expansion of this airport is being considered, to turn it into a base for arctic operations.

Arctic Bay Airport, CJX7 ?

Right county, region and second word. All you need now is the bit in front of the Bay. Be steadfast! (Another clue)

Go for it, John. It's time for one of your specials...

And Thanks, Marcel, your clues opened up the North West Passage - very interesting history. Even the 1942 expedition took 18 months - Ouch! :thum:

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

P.S. Maybe Microsoft will learn to spell, sometime - Artic Bay, Ha!

Resolute Bay Airport it is: located near the hamlet of Resolute as well as the waterway of Resolute Bay; Resolute is named after HMS Resolute, a barque converted for arctic exploration duty; the RCAF are considering using it as an artic...I mean arctic, base, and steadfast - a silly clue I know - is a synonym for resolute. As for the aircraft; the PC-6 is rough-field kind of aircraft, and the runway surface is gravel. Over to you, John. :thum:

You may find this one easy if you own an old copy of F-19 Stealth Fighter by Microprose. I first became aware of the existance of this military airfield while using that program a long, long time ago.
