Watched Most Extreme Airports

We just watched a show that we recorded in our DVR. It was aired on History Channel called Most Extreme Airports. Its crazy how hairy and scary some of the airports are. Some airports made it to the list because of short runways, weather patterns in the area, surrounding area in the airport, just to name a few.

In this show that we watched, an airport in Nepal on top of a mountain with very high elevation made it on top of their list. I can understand why, the runway is very short, the runway is climbing, one side of the runway is cliff and the other is a mountain. Definitely no room for error there. Another airport that made it to their list is an airport with a runway that is so close to the beach that the wind that the planes produced when they are about to take off is so strong that locals and visitors in the area stay on the other side of the cyclone fence, hold on to the metal post fence, as they experience the wind of the engine blowing heavily towards them. Another airport is so weird, the runway literally cross a major road in the city, so they have to control a traffic like a train crossing and block the car traffic so the airplanes can pass through.

The show featured 10 extreme airports in the world. Its a cool show, its fascinating to see how other places in different parts of the world do things that we normally dont see being done in our own cities. Each airport is unique, they are designed according variuos factors like location, weather, and space availability.

One Of My Favorite Channel

One of my favorite TV channel is National Geographic Channel because not only it is informative and educational, it also offers wide variety of interesting topics that many of us can relate to and several different things that we normally deal with on a daily basis like people, science, history, animals, etc. And since we are not meant to live our lives fronting the tv 24/7, its great to have other types of resources, like the internet! Cant get enough of them, check out National Geographic website today!
