Straight in approach to one of the most spectacular runways in the world! The touchdown point is below the people in the photo and then the runway slope goes uphill with max 18.5 degrees. The runway length is 525 m on an elevation of 6368 ft (1941 m) to 6581 ft (2006 m) - Happy landing!

Wow. It looks like one of those James Bond or Mission Impossible movies. Now I have one more "Must Visit" place aside from St.Maartens.

I think that girl should put her jacket on. How can she stand like that in this cold? Only if she had lots of hot chocolate. Impressive view! T.B.

Yeah, and I'll just bet all the pilots who have to "depart" from this place are just "thrilled" with this high-atitude runway! BTW....great shot Markus!

Just out of sight down the hill there's a really fun ski trail that runs around the end of the runway from left to right and eventually down into the village...if your timing's good you get one of these right over your head.
