Great catch! Definitely one of the best exotic airport overviews on airliners.net, or anywhere for that matter!

Well done YU and keep up the great work.

A very sharp photo from such an altitude and distance;
I would never guess that to be a 13,000 ft runway! WoW!

Very nice for what I assume is a hand-held shot?
