5 miles from here the airplane has to make a sharp turn to the right to be in the correct position for the landing lane, another 5 miles away. Not much room for manoeuvering with the mountains on the left. Nearing the coastline, the plane is still flying at an altitude of ± 1500 ft.

For the pilots this must be like playing Flight Simulator, their brows damp and their hands wet.
