Thanks for sharing this video. Great shot. Could watch this for 12 hours instead of minutes ;)

I wouldn't want to be a passenger on one of these, but fascinating anyway...

See the runway? I don't :P
A rather strange airport.... A beach on Scotland's Island named Barra.

Here is the landing....

Notice the takeoff done at a totally different heading.

Another fascinating airport in Nepal, Lukla.
Apron looks like a shopping center parking lot and the planes "driving" out into the highway.

Do not know if this downhill runway process could be called take off:P
Would hate to land there knowing its a downhill runway with death at the end!

Thanks for sharing. Too bad Southwest only use state flags, and Colorado's is ... less exciting, considering what the State of Colorado has to offer. That said: I'll take a 1:500 model of this one any day.

There is a documentary I saw on Netflix about American Airlines on the Wii. It was called "Inside American Airlines, A Week In the Life." by CNBC. Anyway, it is about 90 minutes long or so, and it its really good. It was made in 2009, And I suggest you look at it even if you aren't an American fan.

There are also to good documentary's on the Su-27 and the MiG-29 on YouTube, I will put the links here.

What happen if you get a flat tire before V1. Not much room to abort the takeoff, is there?

Don't worry Jay! You are very close to the Gods up there;) They will keep you safe!

After all, it's got wings;) After a few hundred meters of dive it will get enough speed to glide:P

I seem to remember (from a documentary!) landings are always uphill. There's no chance for a go-around because of the mountains. You only have a choice of where to crash. And I don't think rejecting a take-off is an option.

That's an amazing landing. I love seeing the A340 land!
