Ice runways aren't as crazy as they sound
After several brutal months, most of America is ready to see winter's backside. But for aviation enthusiasts in New England, the longer and colder the season, the better. As long as the waters of Alton Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire stay frozen, pilots can use the only FAA-certified, plowed ice runway in the continental U.S. Weather permitting, Alton Bay is used by about 50 seaplanes each month. But come the freeze, conventional aircraft come in droves.
