ILS To 14 a KFRG. Do it down to minimums in the rain. That runway is only 7000 ft long. If you can land the 747 there, I'll be impressed. People have tried it in 777's and failed, I did it in a 737Ng BBJ and landed. The approach isn't the hard part, the landing is. By thee way, put the wind between 190 and 230 at 17 sustained gusting to 31! After the 747, try a 172, same winds!

I tired Innsbruck in an Fokker-100. Tough it was night. I almost crashed into mountains on approache. It was like an Hong Kong approach. A last 45 Degree turn and 25 degree nose down! hard but made it and did it twice.
