The life and times of Patrick Burleson

Airplanes!

Posted on by Patrick

This is not exactly the post for those of you afraid of flying. I’ve had this links and videos sitting in a text file on my computer since February when I found them. I was supposed to blog about them a long time ago, but I never could seem to find the time. Today, I made that time.

It all started when I saw this photo:

Then I started searching around for crazy places to land and found the following.

Low Landings

This is a series of YouTube videos of various low landing approaches in St. Maarten.

Next up is anding at Culebra Airport in San Juan.

This last one is a link because YouTube won’t allow me to embed it:

Low Landing in Honduras

Hong Kong

This is a representative clip I found of the landings at the now retired Kai-Tak Airport in Hong Kong.

Finally, I leave you with a link to a story about the most dangerous places to land. Enjoy!

awesome! There’s supposedly some air strips in the himalayas that are at a 10% grade, and you land going “up hill” and then take off zooming down hill then off the cliff.
