Kort landingsbaantje, lijkt me. Of is dat vertekening op de foto... Haarscherp en recht/symmetrisch Tomas! Een pluim op je hoed ;)

Hoi Christien, deze landingsbaan is 2,225m lang, valt nog best mee toch? ;) Is inderdaad vooral een kwestie van perspectief denk ik. Al is het inderdaad wel korter dan de banen op Schiphol bijvoorbeeld, die zijn 3km+ voor de grootste toestellen. (de andere baan op Wichita Mid-Continent Airport is wel van die orde van grootte).

Groeten, Tomas

Great perspective, Tomas! 2.225 m is decent, Druk Air have only 1.964 m for their A319 at Paro;-)

Cheers, Gudrun

Thanks Gudrun! Always nice to take some shots from an airplane. That approach you're linking to does seem a lot more interesting than the one you would have here. ;)

Cheers, Tomas
