Why was this topic moved from Civil Aviation to this forum? I was wondering the altitude of this airport... Not necessarily showing off the photo..

Great Photograph, but don't let your eyes fool you, it's an optical illusion.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the nice comments. Like it was previously said the airport is about 348 metres // 1140 feet. I was standing on a platform which is about 30 metres higher than that (100 feet higher).

Like Crank said it's actually an optical illusion. The clouds were actually in the background around the mountains whilst the plane was taking off in great weather.

Hope this helps you out,
Tim
