10. Drop In
An airport in the valley may be a lovely thing, but it takes a seriously skilled and confident pilot to land there.
9. Short Story
Don’t let your attention wander if you’re landing here, the world’s shortest commercial runway.
8. Beach Baby
And to think some beaches won’t even allow cars. Pfft.
7. Dusty Dusty Dusty
Landing a giant cargo plane isn’t easy, even on a big runway. Doing it in the desert calls for nerves of steel. (And a dust broom or two.)
6. Ice Ice Baby
Not everything on ice is delicate and dainty. See one of the world’s largest cargo planes making a cool landing.
5. Low Blow
St. Maarten’s famous airport on the beach has been thrilling sunbathers for years.
4. Blowing In The Wind
Pilots don’t get to choose the weather - they have to land that plane, sometimes in rather startling crosswinds.
3. Bygone Glories
The Concorde, one of the world’s greatest planes, landing at Kai Tak, Hong Kong’s dramatic city center airport. Both are gone. Hong Kong HKG.
2. Bouncy Castle
If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t cram a bunch of passengers into one of those giant cargo planes, watch this.
1. Bringing It Home
We marvel at the skill of pilots that land planes on an aircraft carrier - but this one lands on a motor home; a small one at that.
