This airport is so dangerous that pilots even think about it a hundred times while landing or taking off aircraft.
You must have seen many such airports, which will be very beautiful. But today we will tell you about some dangerous airports in the world which are very dangerous. This airport is so dangerous that pilots even think about it a hundred times while landing or taking off aircraft. The new pilots do not even think of flying at these places.
Let's know about some such airports-
1. Tenzing-Hillary Airport of Nepal
One of the dangerous airports is Nepal's Tenzing-Hillary. This airport is in the city of Lukla, nestled among the peaks of the Himalayas. The length of the runway is 460 meters. Only small aircraft and helicopters are allowed to land here. There are mountains to the north of its runway and 600 meters deep moat to the south. This is the reason why this airport is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world.
2. Barra Airport of Scotland
Scotland's Barra Airport is no less dangerous. This airport is built on the coast of the sea, so as soon as there is a tie in the sea, the airport sinks in water. There are frequent storms in the sea, due to this, aircraft are made to land or take-off according to the sea storms.
3. Male International Airport of Maldives
This airport is located at a height of only two meters from the seashore. It is very difficult for pilots to make a flight or landing of an aircraft at Male International Airport in the Maldives. It has been said that this is the only airport in the world made of Alaktara. This airport is located in the middle of the sea. If the pilots miss here, the aeroplane may fall directly into the Indian Ocean.
4. Juancho E Eraskin Airport of the Caribbean island of Sabah
Landing a plane at a Caribbean airport is not just about the weak-hearted pilots. It is the shortest runway in the world. This runway is surrounded on three sides by the sea, and on one side is the mountain peak.
5. Hong Kong's Kai Tak Airport
Kai Tak Airport was also one of the most dangerous airports. This airport is dangerous because it had high-rise buildings on both sides, while it is generally forbidden to build tall buildings around the airport. Apart from this, the runway of this airport was also very short. Now this airport has been closed.
