Most Interesting Approaches

Tue Apr 29, 2003 6:20 am

The most Interesting approach that I have experienced is at Male(MLE),Maldives. The airport is built on a small island, with a runway length of 2,840 meters. The Island is out in the open ocean,hence there is always a strong cross wind which makes the landing very tricky.All you see is water and then suddenly the runway appears out of nowhere.I experienced this from the flight deck with my dad on the controls.It was priceless.

I have never done it but I should imagine SXM would be the same. As I can see from pictures,
