  narsarsuaq   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Narssarssuaq (also spelled Narsarsuaq, Greenlandic for Great Plain) was the principal city of Greenland in the times of Erik the Red.
In 1951, it was agreed that Denmark and the U.S. would jointly oversee the airbase; in 1958, the U.S. abandoned the air base (called Bluie West One), but it was reopened in 1959 by the Danish government after the loss of the vessel Hans Hedtoft with all souls south of Cape Farewell.
Ever since, the area has been used for civil air traffic and the thriving tourism industry in and around Narssarssuaq, whose attractions include its great diversity of wildlife and the first Christian church on the American continent.

It was a gray, dismal morning in Iceland, and my wife and I anticipated an uneventful flight to Narssarssuaq, Greenland.
This same low was also blowing warm, moist air over the massive Greenland ice cap, and it was condensing into a thick ground-hugging stratus.
And, though quite powerful and capable of being received all the way from Canada on an eastbound flight, the NDBs at Narssarssuaq and Simultac (on the west coast of Greenland) were weakened by atmospheric conditions.

Most of the way was just a large expanse of water before getting to about 20 miles off the coast of Greenland when the weather took a real turn for the worse.
Snow moved in, cutting the visibility down to a mere 1,000 ft and the cloud base down to 500 ft. This was not a good sign as the approach to Narssarssuaq (maximum word score in Scrabble?), is through a maze of Fjords with mountains either side.
It was down to surface skimming and keeping your eyes out to make sure you go down the right Fjord.
