Hey guys,

I was popping through Google Earth and when I went to check out Guatemala's new sectional image, I found this out:

Apparently it has been re-designed to make aircraft waste less gas while on the takeoff run, according to the airport authority "We thought that curving smoothly the runway would help with today's high oil prices, and also provide a quicker takeoff time." Our friend from the forums, Carmenlu15 said that the design was great and feels very smoothly when taking off "Its like you don't even feel the runway on takeoff, it is marvelous!"

I can't believe I even had the time to post this  bigthumbsup 

Enjoy  sarcastic 
Tomas.

I knew the runway was quite bumpy, but not that bumpy...

It's like riding a rollercoaster, but much more fun!  Wink



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
