Overview of Hilo International, located on the east side of Hawaii's Big Island. Hilo is one of five major airports in Hawaii but, as you can see, it is not as busy as Kona (KOA / PHKO), located on the other side of the island. The shot was taken from Blue Hawaiian Eurocopter EC130 N11QF during an awesome tour of the island. [Nikon D700, AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lens]

Great shot Tony! What an 'un-crowded' airport.

In the northwest corner of the picture you can see roads leading from the housing area. Those are evacuation routes used during tsunami evacuations. The route leads right across runway 8/26. When an evacuation is ordered the gates are opened and people drive right across the runway. Very unique perspective.
