Final call for one of the world's scariest airports

Recommended Posts

How about the short runway on Saba island. Saba island is just next to St Martins. Next time I go to Saba, I'm talking the 45 minute boat ride from St Martins. :lol:

Saba is cool, but a Twin Otter can land on a stamp, so no biggie :D.

Here's an everyday shot from their Arctic Norwegian operations:
