Airports and Airstrips With Difficult Runways PowerPoint
Presentation researched by Alan Thomas - ex RAF Spitfire Pilot
Airstrip In the Jungle - PowerPoint Slide
Alan Thomas, my father, tells me that every runway has a number which indicates its bearing. Silly me, I thought it was the runway number - then 22 runways in a jungle clearing did seem to be odd!
This Airport (landing strip) Dominates Ulithi Atoll
The Island is part of an Atoll in Micronesia, called Ulithi Atoll. The
Atoll belongs to Yap State which is part of the Federated States of
Micronesia, just south of Guam. I am based on the Island of Yap, and I fly
for an organization called Pacific Missionary Aviation. We fly to that
island twice a week, with Beechcraft Queen Airs. Yeah you've definitely
got to be on the ball landing there, but its runway is only 3,000 feet long, so there is
a little margin for error, if you land a little long. Information kindly supplied by Amos Collins
Tricky landing. Fly over hill, stop the plane before it runs into the sea
By the way, did you see the bearing number (10) on the runway?
More Airports with a Difficult Runway - Madeira
Pictures kindly Sent in by John Reeves
Madeira Run Way - Underground and at Night
In 2000 the island of Madeira built a new runway. The pillars that
you see in the photos above stand 60m tall. What you don't see is that
each of the 180 pillars also extends downwards 60m below sea level.
The airline had a policy that required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a - 'Thanks for flying XYZ airline'.
An airline pilot on this
particular flight hammered his plane into the runway really hard. In light of his bad landing, he had difficulty looking the passengers in the eye, all the time he thought that a passenger would have a
smart comment. However, it seemed that all the passengers were too shell shocked to say anything.
Finally, everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking with a cane. She said, 'Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?' Why no Ma'am', said the pilot, 'What is it', the little old lady said, 'Did we land or were we shot down?'
