January: Crazy Approaches

Recommended Posts

Our theme this month is crazy approaches (Lukla, Courcheval, Kai Tak, aircraft carriers etc...)

Any type of aircraft. It could even be an extreme cross-wind landing or short field like Saba.

(Thanks to Rob for the idea)

Good luck one and all and please take note of the rules here!

The closing date is 23:59 GMT Sunday, 31st January 2010.

Good luck great.gif

Approaching the Tiny, almost indistinguishable Frenach Airport hidden in the Alps:

Thanks very much for viewing, good luck to all!

EDIT: Just noticed Joe has already included Courchavel in his first post! :smile:

Another angle from the above approach, anyone still on that beach will get more then just a suntan!
