Male should be one of the favourite airports "view while landing" wise with many airline pilots.

Whiloe that airport must be fun to fly into/visit I would imagine seeing nothing but water at either end of the runway is not very fun. My guess as a pilot is that I'd rather see open space at either end to provide room for error(thats a big just incase, the best way to avoid that is not make an error! Laugh out loud).


Still I'd love the challenge of an airport like that!
