Alton Bay Ice Runway Landing and Departure

Here is a video a friend took on a recent flight to the Alton Bay Ice Port (B18) in New Hampshire. Alton Bay is the only FAA approved ice runway airport in the entire US, including Alaska. There are frozen lakes where pilots land in Alaska, but they are not FAA designated airports like Alton Bay.  The camera is mounted outboard on the left wing. The Alton Bay Ice Runway is open weather permitting until Mar. 15.   Regardless of the weather it closes Mar. 15. The RW is 2,600’ long and 14 inches of solid ice, not a difficult landing.
