I know that Air Namibia used to send it's 747SP to Walvis Bay which only had a dust runway back then. They even published a picture somewhere which was just unbelievable.

Then I think there are some other carriers in India and elsewhere in Africa that still send their airliners to dust runways.

Any pictures in the database or elsewhere? Thanks a lot!

.....not actually a dust runway, just loose dust/sand alongside the runway.
You should see the ones taken of the 747 as it taxied out - well, you can't see the 747 actually as there's too much dust !!!

Best Rgds

Still looking for that 737 dust take off.

In the meantime as a teaser another C-17 kicking ass!



Any other AIRLINERS in the dust?
