Misty Moorings Weather

Before you fly, check the weather. "Misty" Fjords is named that for a reason. Sometimes it is impossible to fly in the area. Clicking on the weather links below will help you for the area, and the two live weather cams below will show you what you will see at Ketchikan.

Misty's Place
N55 15.72 W131 46.26 Alt 26'

To the left is a top down view of Misty's Place. This is where many of our adventures and flights will begin so we thought you should be familiar with it. It is the home base for the Return to Misty Moorings site.

Misty's Cottage - We will often refer going to the end of the runway with the little white cottage ... that's Runway 17, (but the paint keeps coming off the dirt!).

Misty's Bar & Grill - This is a general hangout for pilots and locals in the area. This is where a lot of the adventures are planned and where you can get a great fried halibut sandwich and, on a warm day, a cold glass of beer (on a warm day) or, on a damp and misty day, a steaming hot cup of coffee on those damp, wintry days in Misty Fjords.

Hangar #1 - This is where the bigger planes are parked and where maintenance is done on them.

Hangar #2 - This hangar is for smaller planes where the light maintenance is done (plugs, oil, brakes, etc).

Amphibian Ramp - Notice across from the Bar and Grill, there is a place where you can "drive" your amphibian into the Misty Canal. You can then (being careful) navigate up this canal, stop at the float docks, or proceed to takeoff out over Bostwick Inlet.

Float Plane Dock - There is a very nice float plane dock and fishing pier near the beginning of Rwy 35. You can park your float plane there.

Cabin - A place for an overnight ... rustic and away from the noise ... just a nice place to relax on a day off.

Orientation: Flying from 35 will take you nearly over PAKT and flying off 17 after a bank to port will take you out over Bostwick Inlet. Click on image to the left for overview map of the immediate area.

A Misty Tale - The Story of Misty's Place - by Brian Kirk

Back in 2005, when "Misty Moorings" was the original site, a talented contributor named Bryan Kirk offered us three chapters of "A Misty Tale". Digging into the archives, we found his three chapters and present them here for you to know the storyline on Misty's Place. Click on a Chapter to Read it. Misty's Place was moved after this was written, it used to be up on Thorne Bay. "DocBird" has put all three chapters together in a 40 page pdf format. You can download the pdf HERE.

Doug's Hawaii - (Escape from Misty Moorings)

Once in a while, a break from the ice and snow, the tedium of dodging mountains in bad weather calls for a little R&R (Rest and Recreation) to a warmer, calmer clime. When I finish a major project at RTMM or get a little overworked from new things we are trying and adding, I slip off to Hawaii to kick back and relax. If you have all of the RTMM libraries and ORBX Vector/Global, these will be no-brainer Addons for you. The Hawaii Photoreal (donation ware) is an excellent addition also. I've focused on the coastal docks for the major islands. The vehicles of choice are DeltaSim's Yachts, the Misty Grumman Goose and the CIRP Hovercraft, but basically vehicles that use water. Helipads are at most locations also. Each place has a parking place for a "sea plane" or a small boat. All have way points, fuel docks, etc. If you just want to kick back and "sail" off to one of the islands in the Hawaiian chain ... this is a great way to do it. When you get your tan and your nerves are settled, then you can RETURN to Misty Moorings! Click on button below to go to "EFMM".
