Nice overview of Shimojishima Airport (SHI). This shot was taken enroute from Kansai to Ishigaki (ISG) by JTA85 (B737-446, JA8993). Now you can see the beautiful coral reef locates in that airport. If you look closely, there is a B767 holding at the end of the runway preparing for take off. Moreover, there are two "holes (ponds)" (55 and 75 m in diameter) in the very left end of the island called "To-ri-ike," that connect through an ocean 50 m below the sea level. It is an exciting spot for scuba diving.
