Thats gotta be tricky. Seems like there is some other airport (China or Japan) that has nasty cross-winds, tight runways and you almost have to swoop down after clearing the buildings. Just googled it. Kai Tak in Hong Kong was it.

I googled it while posting and didn't edit what I had already typed. I knew it was "over-there" in that general area... from memory. :P

:P This can't be good for safety. Some guy could just stand there and just throw things at the plane.
