TFFJ, St.Barts.It's been plastered all over the screen shot forums since Fly Tampa released their St.Maarten scenery.In real life ENAT (Alta Norway) is pretty cool with it's short runway and wicked crosswinds.As well I love KMDW, it's very intimidating landing a 737 in the middle of a city.

I agree with the thread's authour, Bella Coola is a very nice place to fly in and out of. Stewart is also great. Try either in a heavy for a challenge. :)Both are in BC, Canada, and are covered by freeware Genesis mesh, which is required(!) to get the best out of the area.

Reggio Callabria. That one has an even bigger offset than the old Kai Tak. I guess it's not as prominent because the field is too small to accomodate 747's.

Julianna Airport (TNCM)--St Maartans--you're literally only 50 feet above a public beach on approach to RWY9. Not overly challenging but definetly in the pretty cool category. My screenshots below:319stmaartans.jpgStMaartan757-1.jpgKemoF15

There are so many but at the top of my list is the Funchal LPMA Rwy 05 Approach ...if you do not follow the charts to the letter you will never make this approach.This is a Captain only approach in real life. :-kewl

My favorite one is the approach to Palonegro airport (SKBG) at Bucaramanga (my hometown). Check this picture, and try that one...without ILS!(Palonegro got one last year)http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/401/palonegro0027ez.jpgHere you can see the threshold of the runway 35 (34 in FS default configuration)... abyss here, here and there.. and the runway about 1000 ft over the rest of the terrain...well, the bottom of the valley between Bucaramanga (in the background) and its airport. The default mesh is enough, but I recommend some good mesh for a more dramatic effect.I also love the approach to runway 10 at St. Barthelemy (FlyTampa). That final descent (or maybe fall) to the runway... I love it:DBest regards from ColombiaLuis Miguel
