I wrote days ago about the best airport websites and now for this article, I would like to dedicate it for the most dangerous airports of the world. Not for the high traffic neither for its hard access, no, it is about the worst leaving/landing strip of the world.
No matter if those airports only allow small planes or not because if we see those strips, we can be afraid for our life and outside the weather condition, we can only count on the experience of the pilots.
The point is that we have no choice if we want to reach the closer city but for some of them, if we don’t want to use the plane, we can find a way around like landing to another city close to our destination and after take the
boat, a taxi or why not just walk if it exists this possibility, of course, it will take us more time. For this topic, I think that pictures are best than words so following some nightmare landing strips (for us and for the pilot too !!!):
|Kansai airport, Osaka (Japon)
|Funchal airport, Madère Island (Portugal)
|Santos Dumont Airport , Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)
|Congonhas airport, Sao Paulo (Brazil)
|Princess Juliana airport, Saint-Martin (Sint Maarten)
|Juancho Yrausquin airport, Saba (Netherlands Antilles)
|Florø airport, Sogn og Fjordane (Norway)
|Lord Howe Island Airport, Australia
|Mexico City International airport, Mexico
|Catalina airport, California (USA)
|Mariscal Sucre International airport, Quito (Ecuador)
|Don Muang airport, Bangkok (Thailand)
|Gibraltar airport, Gibraltar
|Ice Runway airport, Antarctic
|Tenzing-Hillary airport, Lukla (Nepal)
|Courchevel airdrome, France
So desiring to take the plane and to experiment a great sensation !!! If you know another one, don’t hesitate to share it with us.
