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.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Tue September 18, 2012:
The ingenuity and engineering used to construct this runway is truely exceptional.

Truly impressive detail

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue August 8, 2006:
My grands have a house just beside it! I always try to find it, but never seen a photo from this side (usually you can find from Sta Cruz view). So congratulations!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu August 3, 2006:
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!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Just the thought of all those landing onthose concrete pillars superbe piece of engineering.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Fri April 7, 2006:
Great architecture and great photo!

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri April 7, 2006:
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...

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 26, 2006:

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

A visitor from India posted Mon September 26, 2005:

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 26, 2005:
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?

A visitor from Portugal posted Sun September 25, 2005:
The must awsone airport of Portugal!

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 24, 2005:
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?

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 22, 2005:
I would land at this airport.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu September 22, 2005:
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.

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu September 22, 2005:
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.

A visitor from Denmark posted Thu September 22, 2005:
Nice photo, nice angle.
What a view over the airfield from the have from the houses on the "edge"

The airport built into the side of the hill and partially supported by vertical colums.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 20, 2005:

Great Shot!!

Terrific and usual airport.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 20, 2005:
Knew this was a water based airport but the extension is quite engenious. I remember the TAP 727 that crashed off one end.. nopt sure which but one can clearly see mother nature is wating at each end!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue September 20, 2005:
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.
