Scary Airports Around the World

Very interesting story and videos of some of the scariest airports to land. I have landed at two of these locations. I will also add another. The airport in Anchorage, AK is quite scary. Not so much for the terrain, although it does bug me. It is the fact that the runway extends out into Prince William Sound. This body of water is relatively warm, especially in the winter. This causes updrafts that can move an approaching aircraft up and down enough to give passengers’ great pause (OK, it scares the snot out of me). I have landed there several times and still dread it.
