I would love to see what is behing that danger sign!
Cheers and great pic, I love those small birds with big engines...

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 7, 2013:
Actually, the Twin Otters are usually very high crossing the beach as they want to touch down by the ramp so they have a short taxi.

A visitor from - posted Wed February 6, 2013:
Too high? Looks like a very normal approach too me. And anyway, it's a twin otter, they can land on a penny if needed.

A visitor from - posted Wed February 6, 2013:
Definitely not too high -- it's a small aircraft on final. He'll probably touch down farther back than the jets do.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 6, 2013:
Nice capture. The "Danger" sign on the girls top is quite fitting for this place!
To the comment form China: A Twin-otter certainly does not need the full runway for its landing. So no porblem if it is too high.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed February 6, 2013:
To the commentor from China, I'm pretty sure he isn't going to overshoot the runway. If a 747-400 can land there, the Twin Otter can land halfway on the runway and still would be able to stop in time!

A visitor from China posted Tue February 5, 2013:
Coming in too high... Way too high. It's astounding. One of these days, one these planes is going to overshoot the runway. The US Army should go in, and do something about it.
