I envy you, I would love to go there.

I don't know if this game is still on.
Well here's two shots from two airports in the same country, just get the country right.

Tip: from a different perspective, this country has the highest peak in the world.

No, a little hotter than that.  Oh, when I said 'from a different perspective' I meant another way of measuring height from a different base.  The standards are 0 = sea level, then mount Everest wins.

No, not Tanzania...  sorry.  ::)

Tip: The mountain I was referring to is in fact an inactive volcano.
In 1976 a flight carrying 55 passengers and 4 crew disappeared totally.  The aircraft and the bodies were only discovered on that volcano in 2002 by mountain climbers, 26 years after the crash.  I don't know if the victims resorted to cannibalism... (at least you should have the continent now)

Ecuador, Chimborazo Volcano. The Vicker Viscount 785D was operated by SAETA and took off from Quito enroute to Cuenca. The aircraft went missing only to be discovered in 2002 by mountain climbers.

Ecuador, well done.

1st pic is San Cristobal Airport (SCY), Galapagos.  This archipelago is part of Ecuador.
2nd pic is Mariscal Sucre International Airport (UIO), Quito.  Landing in Quito is quite nice, you litterally land in the city and fly very close to high buildings.

The Chimborazo was thought to be the highest mountain in the world relative from sea level until 19th century.  Due to the bulge at the equator, it is the highest peak in the world from the center of the planet.

Nou waar op aarde kan hierdie lughawe wees ???

Foto 1 is 'n broodnodige leidraad, anders gaan niemand ooit reg wees nie. Dit is die weswaartse uitsig vanuit die vliegmasjien tydens 'n nadering vanuit die suide ten einde op een van die węreld se langste aanloopbane te land.

Foto 2 is van die vliegmasjien waarmee ek gery het (Vrydag 10/12/2010) - ook 'n broodnodige leidraad :biggrin:

Foto 3 is van die onlangs opgeknapte lughawe-gebou. Dit lyk nou sommer baie ghręnd daar :thumleft:

I can probably add one or two to this one.

Firstly, just another perspective of Gibraltar.
The approach onto the Westerly runway is not as exciting as the Easterly where you have to fly around the rock, but that being said.... anything more than 10knots wind from the south and the windshear and turbulence will make you think twice on short final.

Secondly - Guess the airport - a nice local South African one.
