Chukotka Autonomous Okrug

Chukotka Autonomous Okrug (Russian: Чуко́тский автоно́мный о́круг, tr.: Chukotsky avtonomny okrug; Chukchi: Чукоткакэн автономныкэн округ, tr: Chukotkaken avtonomnyken okrug), or Chukotka (Чуко́тка), is a federal subject of Russia (an autonomous okrug) located in the Far Eastern Federal District.

Chukotka has an area of 737,700 km2 (284,800 sq mi) and a population of 53,824 according to the 2002 Census. The principal town and administrative center is Anadyr. It is the most northeasterly region of Russia and, since the sale of Alaska to the United States, has been the only part of Russia lying partially in the Western Hemisphere (east of the 180th meridian).

Lake El'gygytgyn, an important site for scientific research on climate change, is located in Chukotka, as is the village of Uelen, the closest substantial Russian settlement to the United States.

The name of the airbase was Zaliv Kresta, named after the nearby "Krest Bay".  I have carefully studied the evidence and I conclude that SOMEBODY is going to great lengths to hide the existence of this area.

I discovered from russianairfields.com that there is an air base in the area at;
66° 16' 0" N, 179° 15' 0" E
Zaliv Kresta - Krest Bay
Runway 1350x60m 179-359 T

There is a tiny runway there that basically goes north-south, about 1.3km long. Long enough for propellor planes, maybe learjets. The Russians claim this air base had been bought by the Americans. 

Zaliv Kresta (US) it says.

It doesn't surprise me, the Russians practically advertise their ICBM capability so nobody messes with them, whereas the American Jews are all a bunch of paranoid sketchy twats who dont like anyone to know anything about them.

I agree that Chelsea's Football Manager Roman Abramovich is probably involved seeing as he is the governor of the whole of Chukotka. Also, the Russian government is skint, they can't afford to pay off Google etc to hide ICBM missiles but they can make it nigh on impossible to see what is going on in this area.

It seems this area has been shrouded for quite some time, whilst I don't doubt that a 1.3km runway existed there years ago, I strongly suspect that this tiny airstrip has been developed and built upon and they do not want anybody to know about what is going on there.

The Americans are behind all of this, I am sure of it. That base makes an excellent strategic point against North Korea. I think the base is a CIA extraordinary rendition drop-off/refuel base.

The only other way anybody could get an image of this place is by paying a private satellite company to take a snap during the next flyby.

Those are my thoughts.

The image you're referring to seems to have been tampered with. It looks (to me at least) like someone has pasted another area over the real one. You can see the "seams" along the edges. You can see the place they copied and put over the original on this screenshot I took (from Bing Maps)

I have found a few cut and pasties myself. Has anyone ever seen a place that has been blocked out by EVERY mapping site before?

Right I did some work on tracking down who provided the original data to places like google of the blurred out area, I then sent them a direct email asking for an explination - Today I received a reply...

fc,

Thank you for your TruEarth imagery inquiry. I looked into your question regarding the strange fuzzy spot that you identified in the Google Maps imagery and, yes, I have an explanation. This data looks like it did come from our TruEarth dataset that Google uses as it's global mid-resolution basemap. When examining our source data, sure enough, there is a large data drop out at the same location (see attached). In our source data, it is simply a black wedge which is indicative of a sensor dropout in the original satellite data download. It looks like Google may have patched the black missing data with the fuzzy green patch that you saw.

Thanks again for your inquiry. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Best regards,  Greg Baxes

(He had attached the [above] image to the email - this does show that google added the green/brown blur and that MS used the same data for their images - however is it really a data drop that ALL the mappers have used/duplicated and fuzzed over... or is it blackout for a reason? you decide!)
 

Chukotka During World War Two

Excerpt 1
In 1942 the Fairbanks — Krasnoyarsk airway was organized to transport airplanes received from the US under the land-lease program. In the Chukotka region this airway ran through Uelkal — Markovo where due to heroic hard work of the natives airdromes were constructed in just a few months.
Red yarangas collected funds and facilities for military needs. Inhabitants brought deer, polar-fox skins, fur-gloves, money and bonds to this Defense Fund. Chukotka inhabitants, namely: the Chukchi, Eskimos and Russians were also among those who fought at the war fronts to defend the country from Germans.

Excerpt 2
During the «Cold war», since 1945, military troops were based in the region. The centre of the Soviet armed forces in Chukotka was the Bay of Providenie. The number of frontier posts also increased.
In 1947 a detachment of civil aviation was created in Chukotka. Two Chukotka ports — Peveksky and Providensky — were operating intensely.

Excerpt 3
During the war geologists found that the Chukotka region had ultimate reserves of gold, tin deposits and some other metals. Industrial exploitation of coal deposits began.
Industrial gold-mining started in 1958. This was the beginning of gold-mining industry formation.
The main part of gold-mines, settlements, industrial enterprises, power plants, power transmission lines, roads, etc. appeared and was built in the region in 1960s, when its population exceeded the figure of 100 thousand people

Bilibinskaya nuclear power plant, Chaunskaya thermal power plant and Ekvekinotskaya hydroelectric power plant produced abundant amounts of energy. Production of construction materials was developping in Anadyr, Pevek and Bilibino.

A deserted telephone station on Mount Beklemesheva, Chukotka

The city of Anadyr, capital of Chukotka has been renovated and modernised since
Roman Abramovich was elected governor of this region in 2000

Outside Anadyr the land still needs a major clean-up. Even the most remote settlements are scarred by piles of abandoned rusty fuel-barrels. The deserted, windowless military camp in Providenie reminds me of the Chechen capital, Grozny, after heavy shelling. The forsaken communications installations on Mount Beklemesheva look like the set of a science-fiction film about a mysterious civilisation that perished in unknown circumstances.

There are other obstacles to developing ecotourism in the region. Every time the helicopter lands, uniformed border-patrol officers check our documents. According to federal regulations Chukotka is a restricted zone for visitors. An entry permit takes forty-five days to organise. The unpredictable weather can ruin any trip, a gamble made worse by the limited working hours of airports and air-traffic control services.
