According to reports by the majority of world pilots, taking off and landing is considered one of the most dangerous and horrifying aspect of any flight. Some conditions are far worse than others, of course, and even the most trained pilots won’t fly in certain areas or airports. Mountain peaks, cliff faces, over-crowded beaches, and even some bad traffic will ensure pilots cannot fly safely. Here are ten of the craziest airport runways in the entire world!
Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport
Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport, of Saba Island, is a 1300-foot-long runway that is only a tad longer than the majority of sea carrier runways. This airport is built atop a steep cliff, and one wrong move by the pilot leads to the entire plane landing in the ocean above.
