    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.

    That's one of the military airfields on Guam

    13░35'02.40" N 144░55'40.76" E




    This is the airport at a very popular Asian holiday resort, especially for Australian surfers.

    Knew it right away
    Lukla Airport in Nepal

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenzing-Hillary_Airport

    27░41′16″N 086░43′53″E

    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.

    It's not Easter, it's Christmas!

    Christmas Island Airport: 10░27.0′S 105░41.4′E

    Continuing the Island Trend:

    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.

    Perhaps:
    There are 887 bodies here, but ~ 5000 people.
    It's also an island (since I obscured the water on the other side)
