I only hope it won't try to take off on this short runway. Or it looks like short from this angle. Love this perspective!

Wow, great perspective. That runway does not seem long enough to get out of there! (I know it is)

Short runway? Yes. But not for the mighty C-17.

I see a displaced threshold, I think using the maximum available pavement it should be able to use this runway (winds permitting).

The British temperate climate keeps runways rather neat and tidy doesn't it?

When I was a kid I use to put a rectangular piece of black cardboard on the carpet or soil in order to use it as the runway for my toy airplanes. This pic reminds me those airports I made within a few seconds however, here the scale is a little bit different! (Ali Aminzadeh)
