A busy day at Lukla Airport. Seen here is a takeoff of a Twin-Otter, with the next one ready to go. A Do-228 had to park on the runway because all parking spots were full. Due to bad weather on the previous days, there were a total of 42 flights on this day! Of interest: only pilots with over 7 years' experience are allowed to land here!

A stunning photo. The sunlight partially blocked by the scattered clouds makes the fantastic scenery look even more fantastic. Imagine a power failure riht after lift-off.

Simply stunning... I guess this answers my question of how remote an area can be and still function as an airport.

Greast Picture,
the requirement of 7 years to fly at Yeti seems to be a little overdoing it, but ist definitely is important that one who flys there must knoe how to land hot and high on short fields and of course must have extensive crummy weather experience.

Extraordinary shot of a unique airport. Makes one realise the skills required by the pilots to get in and out of here.

This is one of the most amazing airfields I've ever seen. A quality Lukla addon was released for MSFS2004 and I tried to land there. It's really very complicated, but with lots of experience they probably do it very well.

Truly amazing, it is the gateway to mount everest and should be one of the most difficult airports in the world for the pilots.

Were there, had the sight, got the t-shirt. Beautiful, but scary place to land... :-)

Wow. That's a tough looking runway. Good job capturing that, and good job with the beautiful background of mountains.

7 years experience?, they'd better have, see at the end of the runway: an abyss. If you don't rotate by then you are toast baby.
