Comments and historyRunway is well-maintained; may be paved. Marked as military on US DoD charts. It was on the Zyryanka-Seymchan-Oymyakon (questionable) leg during WWII Lend-Lease, though another source gives Markovo-Seymchan-Yakutsk. Google imagery showed only some small single-engine prop planes.
