It does look a lot more like a dirt track than a landing strip.

This airport seems to have a runway tighter than most other airports taxiways. :shock:

Makes you wonder just how are crosswind landings performed on that tiny narrow strip... :shock:

Its strange that the runway has not been widened as there is plenty of space to widen it.

Speaking of crosswind landings here are some good turbulent crosswind touch and goes at Tokoroa Airfield, New Zealand:

The first one: well, I guess this was just more than a little dangerous! Taking off on such a runway is kinda crazy. Just trying to get the numbers through my head, with such a drag from the gear, close to a wonder, this plane got off the ground safely... :)

The second one: I don't see the problem. Security first, style second! It's much more secure, to center the plane/heading , then get all the other things straightened out, before returning to the centerline. I've seen wingtips crashing onto the runway on such vids, well this one did the better job, I'd say...

Maybe some helicopter experience would be helpful here too? :lol:

Not to mention keeping the landing gears attached to the aircraft. Image You know the runway is bad when you got mud on the vertical stabilizer... Image

Good enough to see more than once. (6 million views and counting :shock: )

Some (if not most) of those crosswind landings are quite impressive. 8)

Probably. Some of the landings nearly seemed to have more crosswind than headwind. :?
