Contest #66 Answer: Tiksi Airport, Russia

This might have been the most difficult contest this site has seen. The answer is the Tiksi Airport in Siberia. Why Skip choose this is beyond me, but nonetheless, that is what the answer is. It was originally designed as a bomber base in the cold war for Soviet bombers to reach North America.

On an unrelated note, I am clearly not able to get contests up in a timely fashion while I’m off running around the world. To keep the contests running more quickly, I’d like to get some to help administer the site. If you would be interested, please send an email to gary(at) Ideally, I’d like to see a new contest up every 3-4 days, which is much more than what it has been.
