This is the old timey ‘make-out point’ of Anchorage.
This is also right next to the airport…right before the landing strip. We’ve been told that when planes are landing you will first see their headlights way off in the distance and then they become closer and closer and will fly right above your head, only a few seconds from landing. They will look like they are going to crash into the bluff or go into the trees but they are not.
We went to check this out, but air traffic control diverted the planes to another runway, and they never even came near us. It was a bust.
