Here’s The Most Dangerous Airports

Have you ever been on a plane and experienced turbulence? Or has your pilot ever performed a “go-around,” where you fly around in a circle until it’s your turn to land? Landing in bad weather is uncomfortable – but these airstrips are terrifying.

 

3. Barra Airport, Scotland

Barra Airport is one of the most dangerous airports in the world, as it’s runway is a beach and marked by wooden poles. The airport’s schedule depends on the water levels of Traigh Mhor Bay and it’s impossible to land when the high tide rolls in.

2. Madeira Airport, Portugal

This airport was named “Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo,” in honor of the famous soccer player. Madeira is one of the most dangerous airports in Europe, because of the strong winds from the sea and its narrow runway.

1. Lukla Tenzing-Hillary Airport, Nepal

This is not only an extremely small runway, it also has a cliff at the end of it. For trekkers climbing Mount Everest, flying here is  the most popular starting point for the route.
