Burnsville - Mountain Air (2NC0)
USA - North Carolina, October 7, 2006
Remark
Photographer
Flying in the mountains gave me a ton of photo oppertunities. This is possibly the coolest, located at the top of a mountain near Asheville the airport elevation is 4,400 feet and the tallest part of the mountain was 6,000 feet. You need permission to land there but it looks like there is a nice resort and golf course next to it. Notice the vibrant colours of the leaves as they start to turn.

An overview of the famous Altiport tucked away in the mountains of Courchevel! First time I've done some spotting on skis! ;-) The field, at a height of 6581ft has a runway 525m in length and slopes up the mountain at 18.5% - an amazing landing site!

Copenhagen - Avedore
Denmark, September 25, 2004
Remark
Photographer
I have seen many sloped runways but a CURVED one is new to me. And next to a busy highway too!! Only about 60 movements a year though from this private airfield that dates back to 1917. Back then it was used by the Army and marine aviation. In between the airfield has been closed and hangars housing the local fire brigade.

Male - International (MLE / VRMM)
Maldives, May 19, 2004
Remark
Photographer
Male International airport (center left) was built on an artifical island. Due to the booming tourism industry the Maldives and its infrastructure are running out of space. Here you can see the new artifical island that supports the growing airport as well as Male itself, the world's smallest capital, visible in the top left corner of the image. Shot from aboard LTU D-ALPF bound for Frankfurt. [1600 pixels, Sony DSC-F717].

Pegasus Quantum 15-912
Old Sarum (EGLS)
UK - England, April 17, 2005
Remark
Photographer
G-BYRU (cn 7574) In a few seconds we will have landed at Old Sarum! A grass field landing in a microlight is quite disconcerting as the rate of descent in comparison to forward speed is relatively high. Sitting on a lightweight fibreglass body suspended beneath a flimsy fabric wing is not for the faint-hearted!
