01-1-Ice-Runway-Antarctica

The super-sized aircraft like the C-130 Hercules and the C-17 Globemaster III have more than enough room to land, but the trick is making sure the ice doesn’t burst when they DO land.

If the ice begins to break up, the planes are redirected to other fields… where it hopefully isn’t breaking up.

“Routine” isn’t necessarily a word they hear often.

04-L57cKpo

And there is a lot of clenching.

05-FFY6BsE

2) Congonhas Airport, Sao Paulo, Brazil: This airport is only 5 miles from the city center

That means, the airport built in the 1930s doesn’t have a lot of room

Pilots have little to no margin for error during landings and take-offs

08-owAANDw

3) Courchevel International Airport, Courchevel, France: This airstrip is 1,700 feet long with a HILL in the middle of the strip.

4) Gibraltar Airport: This small British territory between Morocco and Spain had its airport built during WWII

5) Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport, Saba, Netherlands Antilles: It’s only 1,300 feet long

15-5-Juancho-E-Yrausquin-Airport-Saba-Netherlands-Antilles-

An alternate name for this airport should be “Good Luck.”

16-eR9JStL

Pilots require extra care and concentration when using this paradise’s airport.

17-vBfWWNy

One wrong move and you’d be in the water

18-nbBf2V8

Luckily, only small aircraft land here

19-J74Iwon

6) Kansai International Airport, Osaka, Japan: Due to land scarcity, engineers built this airport in the water

20-6-Kansai-International-Airport-Osaka-Japan

It’s 3 miles offshore in Osaka Bay

21-crYhuDv

7) Madeira International Airport, Madeira, Portugal: The small island away from the coast and the airport only has 5,000 feet

22-7-Madeira-International-Airport-Madeira-Portugal

The hazardous airport greatly limits tourism

23-d2xnWQS

It poses a threat to even the most experienced pilots

24-onovfJQ

8) Lukla Airport, Nepal: Many people begin their Mt. Everest trek from this city in Nepal. There is a lot of traffic between here and Kathmandu. As planes land, sirens inform people to take caution

There is an uphill runway on the side of a mountain

26-kutLx4H

9) Princess Juliana International Airport, Simpson Bay, Saint Maarten: This famous runway is right next to a beach, causing the planes to land right overhead of tourists

Many people enjoy the rush of watching a landing

28-HIIkl1C

Although the planes come closer than most people think

29-2aqx1Ui

30-lfGt9ZQ

Even the force from the engines can harm onlookers
