It went back to Barrow.
There isn't a whole lot between FAI and BRW.
In fact AFAIK other then Barrow the only other place that they can go up on the slope is Deadhorse, which is 175 miles away. Everywhere else is too short, or is an old haul road support airport that has long since been abandoned.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

You can take the pup out of Alaska, but you can't take the Alaska out of the pup.
