TOMORROW ISLAND:

Location: goo.gl...

Another name for the Russian 'Big Diomede Island' is 'Tomorrow Island', due to its location on the international date line.
It's a rather unremarkable place, except for an odd plane that crashed here in 1971 and an anomalous silvery gray hut structure.
A set of car tracks leads up to this 'hut' within 40 meters. Is the 'hut' a tunnel entrance? Or a futuristic tool shed? A secret Russian listening post? Where are the antennas?

The structure measures approx. 9 meters across the dark opening, visible depth is 7m, the height 3 to 4m.
Part of the structure may extend into the mountain. The island is an ancient magma field that may or may not have underground caverns.
Location: goo.gl... 65°45'13.9"N 169°03'19.3"W

A plane crashed there?

Could that be the front of a jet engine cowling laying on its side? Those structures are pretty 'hut' big too...

Looks just like the outer covering of a jet engine. Not sure if the dimensions line up, but considering a plane crashed there, I think we have our answer.

Looks bigger then I thought from your image. I hit your link and zoomed out some are those tire tracks? They look like they head directly to the object. So someone has investigated this somewhere in the world. Maybe we can track down some images of the object if they are on the web. Someone when out there and took a look at some point.

Also used some GIS software I got that gave a little better resolution to the structure / object.

Vehicle hut maybe . Across the water on Little there's a helo pad might be related. call someone there and ask it inhabited.



The plane looks in one piece about half way to the village along the tracks

Doesn't look like the vehicle goes into it, but it could be a storage shed of some kind. You can see the tracks leading up to it.

How did that get there.

I see no runway whatsoever on that Island.

Other structure and possible roads. Follow the roads and you'll find the Plane and a few more buildings.

Possibly a couple of weather stations. I did see what looked like a small base on the north end of the island. Can't be much though.

Flying over when the image was captured?

Look at using the google maps link. It's on the deck. You can see the shadow on the ground just underneath it.

Does the Bering straight freeze over the winter time? I heard you could drive from Russia to Alaska when it freezes? It might explain how materials manage to get to the islands

A little bit of info from Wikipedia

After World War II, the native population was forced off Big Diomede Island to the mainland in order to avoid contacts across the border. Today, unlike Alaska's neighboring Little Diomede Island, it has no permanent native population, but it is the site of a Russian weather station and a base of Border Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation troops (FSB).[7][8]

The Russian version of the "Doomsday" seed vault?

It looks to be broken. Like this one.

The odd aircraft on Diomede (solved)

The plane is a Lisunov Li-2. This is a version of the Douglas DC3/C47 Dakota built under licence in Russia and Uzbekistan before and during WW2.

Actual data: Length: 19.65 m (64 ft 5 in)
Wingspan: 28.81 m (94 ft 6 in)

In September 1971, the Li-2 aircraft brought ballots to Ratmanov Island. It threw out the packages at the outpost and did not pull up in time because of a downdraft and low clouds. The crew made an emergency landing and spent the night on Big Diomede to be rescued the following day by helicopter.

Whatever it is, 'the shack' is the closest Russian building/structure to the US.

Robert Soolook, a Diomede villager, shows a journalist, with the help of a telescope a Russian observation post across the water on the Big Diomede Island. "It shouldn‘t be like this," he says. "We‘ve been here for thousands of years, before the English came, the Americans, the Russians, before any governments and regulations separated us from our families. This border is breaking our hearts."

Someone guessed that this 'observation post' that Robert Soolook saw is the 'shack' that we see.

I googled the *Robert Soolook' quote and found the original BBC article,
that also shows a picture of the alleged 'observation post':


Looks more like a lighthouse to me.
