ou are now downloading
you "key" to Misty's Place. The purpose of the key
is to give you a handy desktop shortcut where you will be
able to navigate to all of the Misty Moorings, Inc. web pages
as well as to Misty's Place. We know that not all of us are
on broadband, so we created this method of getting the key
to make it easier for you. So while you are downloading your
key, you may browse through the following information to learn
more about Misty's Place and some of the features.
reason we created Misty's Place was to give the pilots flying
the beautiful Misty Fjords a place to gather, discuss Misty
Fjords, discuss scenery projects, etc. Many of you have asked
for a "club house" or a "meeting place"
that is exclusively for you and people like you ... Misty's
Place is that ... but also a lot more:
Place is located on Thorne Bay about 40 miles northwest of
Ketchikan. You can get a TripTic to find Misty's Place on
the Misty's Place Web Page. The web page also has a forum
so the pilots can chat after their flights, and we can all
discuss technology, add-ons and all the other things that
are happening these days in Misty Fjords. The web page will
also include a "flightsim story" that will give
you the continuing adventures of "Buck," our hero
and "Misty" our heroine ... you'll want to check
back often to keep up with the adventures. All are welcome
at Misty's Place, the membership and the forum is open to

Place Airfield (MM01) is a night-lighted runway of 2500 feet,
large enough to safely land some twins even in some rather
nasty weather. AVGAS is available by pulling up to the pumps.
A hangar is available and plenty of tie down room. VASI on
both ends of the runway adjusted for over water on one end
and over mountains on the other. This is, however, a non-towered
Place Seaplane (MM02) has a water runway NW/SE 2500' by 100'.
There are no markings or lights. There are a couple of beautiful
docks where you can tie down your floatplane ... then walk
up the walkway to Misty's Place and have a fine meal.
Place Helipad ... fully lit helipad ready for all comers.
Place Lounge ... a place to hang out for pilots, a bar and
grill, open 24 hours, on the web page, this is our "forum."
Place ... a bed and breakfast/motel complex where there is
fine cuisine (one of the best restaurants in the area) and
fine lodging for the more discriminating patrons.
Bunkhouse ... this is where Buck will be calling home. You'll
get to know Buck from "The Misty Tale," the flightsim
adventure on the Misty's Place web page.
Hangar ... Hank is the resident mechanic that keeps everything
running; Hank will appear regularly in "The Misty Tale.
Cabin ... on a little lake nearby ... you'll meet Tom later
in "The Misty Tale."

docks, walkways, porches and signs. A lovely place just to
"walk around" and enjoy at dusk and at night. Many
details included, phone booths, and all. When you fly toward
Misty's Place at night, you'll see it!

also find sailboats and shipping traffic moving through and
around Thorne Bay.
12. Windfall Harbor ... another small
addon scenery is included. This adds a Challenger Field that
is about 800' long. This is mainly for Ultralights and small

We hope you
enjoy Misty's Place. We wanted to give you a club house or
a place where you can meet each other, exchange ideas and
generally have some fun. We will always be adding new things
to the web site and as the Misty Tale continues, new sceneries
will fit the stories.
Safe Flying ... and Enjoy!
