San Diego's runway is 9400' long. Do they have service from Asia? I'm not sure. I'd guess the British Airways flight is the longest distance arrival there.
But for a short, pucker factor inducing runway, nothing in my mind beats Kahului airport (OGG
) in Maui, Hawaii. Only 7000' long with a good down slope toward the ocean (the usual landing direction), plus winds gusting over 30 knots a LOT of the time, means it takes the cake in the short runway-hot brakes-burnt rubber-"Jeez the end of the runway is coming up fast" sweepstakes.
Add the facts that most of the pilots flying there don't come in regularly, and that approach control thinks nothing of telling you to do a short slam-dunk approach, and that there's a 10,000 ft. mountain on one side and a 4000' mountain on the other side, and that those mountains and wind combine to cause constant teeth rattling turbulence to touchdown, and I think OGG
wins the award (from a pilot's perspective at least).
One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
