<font color="#CCCCCC">faqs verse presents most dangerous</font>

airports in the world lukla airport this is the main air boards that you would take if you were going<font color="#CCCCCC"> to</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> be</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> visiting</font> Mount Everest the<font color="#CCCCCC"> airport is nestled</font> between two mountains and the runway is extremely short because<font color="#CCCCCC"> of the elevation</font>

the plane cannot get any lights and very little electrical power also<font color="#E5E5E5"> there are</font> no air traffic controllers therefore it is up to the pilot to safely touchdown and land the plane on their own courchevel<font color="#E5E5E5"> airport this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> french airport</font>

is built into the<font color="#CCCCCC"> alps when the pilot is</font> ready to land he must fly through a narrow Valley for his<font color="#CCCCCC"> defense the</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> runway</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">is also very short it</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> is the shortest</font> runway of any airport in the world the <font color="#E5E5E5">runway is just point three miles long if</font>

the pilot is not able<font color="#E5E5E5"> to get up enough</font> speed to<font color="#E5E5E5"> take off they will fly right</font> off a<font color="#E5E5E5"> cliff and hope that the plane</font> stays in the air another reason<font color="#CCCCCC"> that</font> takeoff is so difficult is that the runway<font color="#CCCCCC"> has a downward slope of about</font>

<font color="#CCCCCC">eighteen point five percent most pilots</font> avoid using<font color="#E5E5E5"> this Airport at all costs</font> Tom cotton airport this is yet another example<font color="#E5E5E5"> of an airport that</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> located</font> between<font color="#E5E5E5"> the</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> mountains with very rough</font> terrain in order for a pilot to prepare

for<font color="#CCCCCC"> the planes descent they would need</font> to make a<font color="#CCCCCC"> 45 degree turn if they're</font> going<font color="#E5E5E5"> to reach the runway which is</font> located in a valley once they make the turn they would need to drop their altitude quickly if they don't the plane

can scrape the terrain underneath resulting in a crash only the most skilled pilots attempt a landing at this <font color="#E5E5E5">Airport Princess Juliana Airport this</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">Airport was initially built for small</font> planes this is why the runway is just

seven thousand one hundred forty eight feet long in order for a large plane to land safely it needs at least<font color="#CCCCCC"> eight</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">thousand two hundred</font> when the tourist industry in the area started booming the airport began

bringing 747 and a340s in its regular air traffic rotation another<font color="#E5E5E5"> reason that</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">this Airport is so dangerous and unique</font> is that there is a public beach located right before the runway when planes land huge gusts of wind<font color="#E5E5E5"> and sand come up this</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">is a problem for the people at the beach</font> pero<font color="#E5E5E5"> airport this</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> Airport is so</font> dangerous that there are only eight pilots in the world who<font color="#CCCCCC"> are qualified to</font> land there the<font color="#CCCCCC"> runway is surrounded by</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">mountain peaks that are 18</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> thousand 44</font>

feet<font color="#CCCCCC"> high to make matters worse the</font> runway<font color="#E5E5E5"> is only six thousand four hundred</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">ninety nine feet long because airplanes</font> need to make such a quick descent to get to the strip only the best of the best can land or take off from this<font color="#E5E5E5"> Airport</font>

gibraltar international this<font color="#CCCCCC"> airport is</font> not dangerous because<font color="#E5E5E5"> of a short runway</font> or a location inside of the mountains it is<font color="#CCCCCC"> dangerous because the runway actually</font> intersects a<font color="#E5E5E5"> main street Winston</font> Churchill Avenue when a plane<font color="#E5E5E5"> needs to</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">land the road is closed there are not</font> people blocking off<font color="#CCCCCC"> the street there's</font> just one<font color="#CCCCCC"> stoplight to warn drivers to</font> stop for an airplane because<font color="#E5E5E5"> there isn't</font> much to stop drivers there have<font color="#E5E5E5"> been</font> plenty of close calls over the years

<font color="#E5E5E5">McMurdo</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> air station people don't visit</font> Antarctica often therefore the McMurdo <font color="#E5E5E5">air station doesn't have the best of</font> safety conditions the<font color="#E5E5E5"> runway is a pretty</font> good length however<font color="#CCCCCC"> since it is freezing</font> there all year long<font color="#E5E5E5"> the runway</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> is</font>

<font color="#E5E5E5">usually covered with slick ice since it</font> is<font color="#E5E5E5"> dark therefore most months of the</font> year the pilots who land need to wear night-vision goggles so that they can see where they're going<font color="#CCCCCC"> Madeira airport</font> this is one of<font color="#E5E5E5"> the only airports in the</font>

world whose runway was built my engineers the landing strip has steep cliffs on one side and the ocean on the other in<font color="#E5E5E5"> order to expand the runway they</font> had to build the extent on over 180 columns these columns must

be<font color="#E5E5E5"> able to withstand of a heavy shock</font> that airplanes produced during landing if an airplane comes in too hard the runway<font color="#E5E5E5"> could collapse so far it hasn't</font> happened however over<font color="#CCCCCC"> time the columns</font> will weaken without<font color="#E5E5E5"> proper upkeep an</font>

accident is definitely possible<font color="#CCCCCC"> Narses</font> <font color="#CCCCCC">whack airport this is one of</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> the most</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">dangerous airports in the world for a</font> few reasons the<font color="#E5E5E5"> environment is what</font> makes this<font color="#CCCCCC"> airport so dangerous the</font> runway<font color="#CCCCCC"> is</font><font color="#E5E5E5"> always covered with ice if an</font>

airplane comes in fast on the ice it's not uncommon<font color="#E5E5E5"> for the plane to go off</font> into the snowbanks because there is almost always a storm it can be very <font color="#E5E5E5">difficult for the pilot</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> to see where</font> their landing diminished visibility

makes landing at this<font color="#E5E5E5"> Airport very</font> <font color="#E5E5E5">dangerous to make matters worse nearby</font> is an<font color="#E5E5E5"> active volcano which erupts often</font> the ash can stall and even destroy a plane's<font color="#CCCCCC"> engine this can result in a</font> deadly crash this<font color="#E5E5E5"> Airport is so</font>

dangerous that many pilots refused to fly in or out<font color="#CCCCCC"> of this Airport cliff</font> landing this is not a traditional airport it is a place<font color="#E5E5E5"> where</font><font color="#CCCCCC"> an airplane</font> was forced to make an emergency landing luckily the plane stopped before it went

off the cliff it takes a very skilled pilot to perform such a feat subscribe <font color="#CCCCCC">for more</font>
