    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

    Wellington International Airport in New Zealand isn't much better. Coastline, road, fence, runway. Haven't got photos, but anyone with Google Earth can check out 4120'10"S 17448'23"E and get a decent idea from the photo.

    Great

    HK used to be similar, though not that extreme, but then they went for the man made island extravaganza

    BTW, Tuttle, Google Earth, great stuff thx for the info

    I hear Hawaii also has an intimidating runway. Probably considerably longer than that driveway, though.

    And in the "cool things I learned today" category, putting 41d20'10"S, 174d48'23"E in the Fly To box saves you having to hunt around.

    Plus more photos of St Maarten: http://www.membrana.ru/articles/tech...21/185300.html
