Shortest Commercial Airport Runway

Shortest Commercial Airport Runway

Juancho E. Yrausquin is the only airport on the Caribbean island of Saba, in the Netherlands Antilles.

Mexico City International Airport, Mexico

Mexico City International Airport, Mexico

Officially called Benito Juarez International Airport is located 13km east of the capital's center.

Strange picture: The western end of the runway is in a low-resolution area, the high-res part is covered in smoke (or smog?). There are lots of passenger planes parked and taxiing.
Note the old extension of the runway to the east, which is now crossed by 3 roads.

Gibraltar Airport with 4 lane road through the runway

Gibraltar Airport with 4 lane road through the runway

Here's a look at the strangest airport I've ever seen. The airport is built on a small peninsula going perpendicular so it is built out over the water. In order to get past the airport, cars have to drive over the main strip of the runway. There looks to be railroad crossing style drop-down gates at each end of the crossing road.

You can see more close-ups of the road/runway at h...

Camo Plane Landing or Taking Off

A camouflaged plane landing at the Beijing Capital airport. The plane seems to be taking off because
A. If you look at the runway to the east, ~8 planes are waiting for takeoff. Therefore, that runway must be the takeoff runway, designating the other (this one) as the landing runway.

But, a counterargument:
