Remark Photographer
With an elevation of 3,448 m (11,312 ft), Huanglong airport is one of the highest in China and even the world. It's a key entrance to Sichuan Province's Jiuzhaigou Natural Reserve and Huanglong Scenic and Historic Interest Area, 2 most popular natural attractions in China. But due to the fast changeable weather (low cloud, turbulence, etc.), it's also a challenging destination for pilots, as said "for any 10 flights to Huanglong, 9 have been cancelled, and the rest one is returning on the mid-way".

I was forced to use this airport during my stay in China, because the road to Chengdu was closed due to the floods. We should take off around the midday, but the weather was bad (as it normaly is), so we took off at 11 pm, so I never really saw the airport and its unusual position. Then I found this picture. Tank you for the great shoot. :)

Very nice - it'll be great to see more photos like this of the many new airports under construction currently in China. Thanks for sharing!
