For some reason that attachment won't open for me. It looks vaguely familiar though...

Try double clicking, Joe. That's what it took for me to get it to open.

And all the feeder routes are heading 360T, or the note "approach may intersect the runway at any angle"

That's one heck of an NDB if you can use it to nav from Sydney to the NP!

Re: North Pole Approach Plate

This plate was obviously created by an Icelander (BI and Reykjavik approach!)

Everyone knows the North Pole is Canadian! It should be a "CY" airport and "Alert Approach"...although HO is not taken so maybe a code of HOHO

Re: North Pole Approach Plate

It's a BMP. Here it is as a JPG, which should open more readily.

Shouldn't the first half of the runway be 36 and the second half 18?

Thought experiment...remember at high latitudes, you use true rather than magnetic.

If you touch down on a runway that runs through the pole, at each end, what is your true course at touchdown?

Re: North Pole Approach Plate

Would a magnetic compass act like a CDI over the North Pole? Cone of confusion and all?

If the magnetic pole were anywhere near the geographic pole...which it isn't!

But the heading will switch at the halfway point...you were cleared to land 36 but yer rollin' out on 18, how's that gonna look to the FSDO when there's an incursion?

Where else can a 747 make a 180 degree turn on a dime on rollout?

No, if the center of the runway is the pole both ends are runway 36.

His point was that halfway through the runway the runway turns from 36 into 18, heading the same direction.

Thanks Grant, I should have thought of changing it to a .jpg before I posted it.

I was trying to post it as a full size graphic but I couldn't find a way to do that.

No doubt, but as runway designations are determined from the approach direction both ends would be 36.
