Where Is That Jungle Airport With The "bumpy" Rwy?

Sun Nov 09, 2003 5:17 am

There was a thread in the forum some weeks ago which started with a picture of a runway which had a couple of "steps". It was a jungle airport, and I thought to remeber it was in Indonesia. Simply, when searching the photo database I cannot find it in the "Indonesia" section...

Anyone knows the one I am looking for?

Cheers

Yes, I remember it very well - the picture was from "the other site", I think, which would explain why it isn't found here.

VERY odd airstrip.

I think it must indeed be from another site, since looking up Malaysia on this forum does not yield anything... Forgive my ignorance, but which is "the other site"?

I'm the one who posted it, and it wasn't from "the other site." Do a search on my username and Indonesia or runway...something like that....I can't because I'm not a first class member.

Flyf15,

you're the man! That was an awesome thread... Unfortunately I am not a first class member either.... All I am wondering: if the pic was from this site, why can't I find it???? Any other search keyword I could use? I tried all of INdonesia already
