    Default Shortest Commercial Airport Runway discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Shortest Commercial Airport Runway

    Juancho E. Yrausquin is the only airport on the Caribbean island of Saba, in the Netherlands Antilles. It is well known among experienced fliers for the way in which airplanes must approach or take off from the airport. The runway at Saba's airport is just 400 meters (1,312 feet) long that leaves no room for any mistake when one lands there, as at each end of the runway there is a sheer drop into the water.

    Thanks SpiderX22 for adding a link to this video. It sure does give a realistic sensation of landing on this runway.

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.

    There has to be a few airplanes underwater at either end of that runway.

    That is insane.

    Default shortest runway

    There is probably also a lot of soiled underwear at both ends of the runway.
