O.k. I know Kai Tak was the most thrilling airport of all times, and St.Maarten gives great shots too... but you hardly will find an airport that is situated as close to the mountains as here in the Obergoms in the middle of the Swiss Alps 1328m above sea level. This 790m long runway has a slope of up to 2% and was originally a Military airstrip. Today, this airport is frequented by gliders and single-engine props from Jun-Aug. In the wintertime the runway is used by thousands of cross-country skiers!
