Lake Hood is located in Anchorage, Alaska. Operating continuously and open to the public, Lake Hood is the world’s busiest seaplane base, handling an average of 190 flights per day.

It’s next to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, three miles from downtown Anchorage.

The base has an operating control tower, and during the winter months the frozen lake surface is maintained for ski-equipped airplanes. Lake Hood is assigned LHD by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA. The airport’s ICAO identifier is PALH.

This camera is made possible by the Alaska Aviation Museum, located directly across the base on Lake Hood. Check out all of their upcoming events, and see the amazing things they have to offer to aviation enthusiasts!
