Gravel Strip

Right in the shadow of the International Airport and the floatplane waterway is a strip for small wheel planes, which you’ll notice is gravel, not paved. That’s because many bush planes have oversized tires, and gravel—because it’s a more forgiving surface in high crosswinds—inflicts less damage on the tire.
