These airports flirt with disaster big time... After some digging around, i was able to get this exciting, fun but shocking airport views!!
10: Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport Saba Island
This beautiful airport is located on the Caribbean island and can be a bit distressing to land on.
The runway is just 1300 foot long and this is just slightly longer than most aircraft carrier runways.
The incredibly short runway is surrounded by tall cliffs, and it comes frighteningly close to a steep slope which leads directly to the ocean. This simply means that if a plan "overshoots" the runway, its plunging into the ocean. This airport is avoided (like a plague) by large planes for obvious reason....
9: Qamdo Bamda Airport Tibet
Towering above every other airport at 14,000ft above see level, the Qamdo Bamda Airport clocks in as the highest airport currently existing in the world. Even more impressive than the airport altitude is the 3.2-mile-long runway.
Airport altitude : 14,000 ft
Airport Runway length- 3.2 miles
This exceptionally long runway makes the landing a little bit safer since high attitude landing requires an awful length of runway.
Traveling at high altitude can in fact be pretty dangerous all round, and travelers should make themselves aware of conditions before they decide to fly in such places
8: Gustaf III Airport Saint Barthélemy
The small airport of Gustaf III, on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthélemy, provides pilots and passengers alike with some fairly grave dangers. The corridor in which the runway has been built is incredibly narrow, and planes come frighteningly close to hitting the slopes of the adjacent upland area, or plummeting into the ocean, every time they land.
