Pilot working hard for his money

Recommended Posts

There was a History channel doco entitled "Worlds most extreme airports" & it listed the Hillary-Tenzing airport in Nepal as the worst. It is 460 metres long with a 12% gradient at an elevation of 9,200 feet. At the end of 06 is a mountain & at the end of 24 is a 2000 foot dropoff.

Elevation was around 5000ft, possibly a bit warm too. Displaced thresh hold may be for the approach angle/ glide slope for terrain clearance in crappy weather. be pretty easy to clean the gear off on that river bank too
