As an interesting fact, the state of Alaska only has 13 FAA control towers total; 4 in Anchorage, 3 in Fairbanks. So the majority of the AS destinations up there are untowered.

Conversely, the...

You can buy durians at Uwajimaya usually. Not sure if they're seasonal, but they do carry them.

There's a reason Singapore has a fine for bringing durians on the train.
