Best airport in the world, only misses the traffic. Great moment caught by Miguel Nóbrega - Madeira Spotters, the weather was great that day and it's a nice add-on the little clouds passing by... <br>Jorge Miguel Abreu - Madeira Spotters

Nice to see the airport like that! I don't know why, but it reminds me to the small airport of "la isla bonita", La Palma (SPC) on the Canaries ;) Looking forward to visit Madeira too.

Something nice about this airport is passing on the freeway under the rwy! I do it everyday with my car!! Simply spectacular! Specially when an airplane is about to land on rwy 23.! Then to make it even more fun, if you continue along the freeway you pass again but this time before rwy 05 on the other side. That is a "must" if you have an airplane on shortfinal! ;-D Anybody who lives in Madeira know what I mean.

That is a very good shot. The airport is very clean. That airport is a very interesting one, being stuck out in the water and having all thoses pilons. I see it must be low tide.

The angle of the picture. Great Architectural achievement!!!

I would like to see a picture of the area before the project was developed. What was there?
Just a piece of the shoreline?

So cool how the runyway is supported by pylons!

How does an airplane position itself onto the runway? Do they just taxi on the runway and then make a 180 degree turn at the end of the runway?

Nice picture! Another view of a great airport I had a chance to visit! It really reminds one to the Airport of SPC (La Palma, Canary Islands). But this hasn't such an impressive construction

That part of the runway that stands on colums is new... it use to be a very small runway , no big planes landed there like the 777 and even for 737s or 320s it was a little bit short and the landings were scary for the passengers with huge breaking after touchdown...

Fantastic! Reminds me of when I went on holiday there last year, it feels like that if the pilot makes a mistake your either in the mountains or in the sea!

This photograph shows the entire airport, which makes clear the extent of the construction that was done to extend the runway. It also gives an idea how short the original runway was in comparison. Other photographs show the immensity of the support columns, but this one shows the scope of the entire project.
