The classic photo of the fantastic Santos Dummont airport, made from the Sugar Loaf in Rio de Janeiro. I must say that from all the airport overviews I had the pleasure of seeing, not a single one beats the beauty of Santos Dummont. Just for curiosity the land where the airport is, was claimed to the Ocean (as this is the Guanabara bay). There was a hill at Rio downtown that was lowered and with the soil this "aterro" (land reclamation) was made. My thanks to all from Contato Radar. You guys rule!!
