    I am confused. That is like a 727 or 737 jet and that runway looks long enough to land a Piper Cub. How do they take off again?

    I might try it in a Cesna 152 if I was low on fuel, and there was a lot of traffic on the highway.

    "One" of the shortest? Are you saying there`s more treacherously brake-snapping international runways out there?

    Ew, Honduras.

    Pilots have to be specially trained to land at airports like this one, Many hours in expensive simulators.

    @Ollie, It would probably be okay for landed a small Cesna or piper, but this pilot landed what looks like a B757, which is a pretty big...

    @panda, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMCpCXngM... one of my favorite ones, Pilot lands a freaken Airbus on a similar runway!

    Isn`t this the runway where, in order to take off, you basically fly the plane right off a cliff?

    Holy poo. I wouldn`t land on that using a dratin jet.

    A small private plane, meh, but a JET?
    That needs skill.

    Would laugh if one of the kids on the ridge tried to land a hook onto the wing of the plane. Last words would be "I got it guys!"

    Rita73, when I asked if you were going to the Teabag demonstration on tax day, I didn`t mean for you to come over and crawl around my back yard teabagging my dog. Have you no dignity woman?

    That was surpirisingly... Dull. Could`ve go a better camera angle for it, like one that shows the planes wheels or one inside the plane or something...

    Only domestic and small planes are allowed on at that airport now. Following a 2008 crash they moved all international flights to a military base nearby.

    If you think this is cool, check Princess Juliana International in the Netherlands Antilles, and the old Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong...
