Hkgspotter1's earlier post brought to my attention some of the fantastic pictures taken by photographers at INN. Here are some nice shots:

Has anyone here been to INN? What's the approach & takeoff like?

Having stayed at the Holiday Inn at INN and seen the aircraft on approach... These are very representative.

I would not like an engine failure on go-around though!

You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!

Obviously, INN has very impressive surroundings because of the closeness of the mountains on both sides of the valley. However, the approach into INN is perhaps not so complicated. I don't think that there are any sharp turns to be done. The valley is quite wide, long and straight, so I would think that this aiport may not be extremely difficult to handle for the pilots, as long as the visibility is good.

PS: I for sure appreciate that photographer Andrew Hunt recently moved from Asia to Europe.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Having to fly a go around in INN is horrible, you have to do a 185° turn in the valley which is about 1.8nm wide. Have fun.

And you have to fight with very strong turbolences because there is a wind called phoen.

INN is really a great airport to photograph. I had one of my best days ever when snapping the above shots.

A go around in INN would more than likely not be restricted to the valley. I think that it would be a bit wider than that.

I'll check my INN approach maps next Monday and tell you about the missed approach path

Ok, but perhaps only for light aircraft?? Assuming that they are different of course.

Flying into INN is the most amazing experience of my life while flying. Flew on a Dash 8 Tyrollean

It was such a turbulent day and the approach through the mountains was absolutely magnificent!

Do it some day if you can!
