A little quiz anyone?

Next airport. On an Island in the Pacific.
Thanks for the link Bob, it's been so long I'd forgotten where it was.
As to your clue, please post a pic of the airfield as seen from Google Earth, facing North.
It took a while to find yours.
That's one of the military airfields on Guam

This is the airport at a very popular Asian holiday resort, especially for Australian surfers.
Is another clue possible?
Knew it right away
Lukla Airport in Nepal
Hint: People get rescued by other people flying from here. A jet company that went recently bankrupt provided a daily jet taxi service to/from here.

Ignoring the coordinates on the image, I came up with 25░54'16.38"N 80░16'41.42"W
This isn't on an island but it is near a big rock.
The road across the runway gives this one away, but I'll check anyway ....
.... yep, Gibraltar. 36░ 9'3.15"N 5░21'0.48"W
This military airfield is on an island that recently "celebrated" an anniversary.
I remember the war. It's Mt Pleasant in the Falklands. 51░49'18.09"S 58░26'53.81"W
I saw airplane take off from here this morning.
Haha I liked that hint. :P
It's not Easter, it's Christmas!
Christmas Island Airport: 10░27.0′S 105░41.4′E
Continuing the Island Trend:
Hint: Has to do with: coming at the close of once naked games
The hint is probably too obscure. More a riddle than a hint. Hard to come up with hints that don't give away too much but give enough to make it reasonable.
There are 887 bodies here, but ~ 5000 people.
It's also an island (since I obscured the water on the other side)
Easter Island. 27░ 9'55.98"S 109░25'24.26"W
This is NOT Easter Island.
