The caption for the picture states July 2005... I can assure you that it is a wee bit warmer than 90 degrees here! In August, we sustain triple digit temperatures when the heat index is factored in. Thanks for the info.
A lack of planning on your behalf does not create an emergency on my behalf.

As Javibi said above, Santos Dummont Airport (SDU) in Rio de Janeiro has a very short runway where 737-300/700 and A319 operate regularly. The length of the runway 02/20 is 1350 meters or a little more than 4300 feet. And is also one of the most beautiful approaches in the world, indeed.

Dutch Harbor is very tricky because you have to deal with not only the short runway but the terrain which rises rapidly at the end of the runway. Also during bad storms the runway disappears under water leaving all kinds of interesting things behind. If they can't land at Dutch Harbor, Cold Bay is usally the diversion point.
