CMF is an airport where 90% of the time, the biggest aircraft they have to cope with is an ERJ-135 doing two flights a day (and that was after upgrading the service from an Embraer 120). Four months out of the year, they have to cope with 4 737's and two BA146's at the same time ) and they are totally overwhelmed by the situation which creates a lot of funny photo opportunities. If were to post all the wacky photos I have of CMF, you wouldn't believe it.
This season we had :
An airport vehicle running into an Excel 737
A marshaller parking a Netjets Falcon 2000 into a Citation
An airport employee spilling sandwiches for a full-load 737 onto the tarmac (707 you weren't there)
Luggage for Billund loaded into the aircraft for Copenhagen
ATC losing a VFR aircraft in the terminal are with IFR arrivals pending
Two aircraft landing at the same time, one radioing ATC "is this normal ?"
BA 737 starting up engines with passengers from another flight right behind
...and the season's not over yet
