Feelin' Blue

A USAAF C-47 approaches "Bluie West One" at Narsarsuaq, Greenland. The approach to this airport was fraught with peril, with three nearly identical fjord entrances to choose from, only the center fjord lead to the airport. The other two were dead ends and fully laden C-47s often did not have the extra performance to climb over, and there was not enough room to turn around. Thus, aircraft on approach to BW-1 had to "feel" their way up the Fjords and hope for the best!
