Aeropuerto Malvinas Argentinas  International airport code USH.  Located at Ushuahia in the Tierra del Fuego Province.
lat=-54.84293892952692,lon=-68.29719543457031

Reference link

ps.  Not on about the same Longitude as Falklands Islands, but rather Latitude.  Longitude is represented by lines running from north to south, and Latitudes run west to east.
Too far south, we almost did end up there but due to bad weather we missed landing at the most southern airport in Argie. See my other hints... I will be away most of the rest of the day and Saturday... doing an off road at Rouxville and no interwebs, so bear with me till I get back. >:D

on the button heineken.

This is Courchevel Airport, a French airport that serves Courchevel, a ski area. Its elevation is at 6588ft. The airport is known for its a very short runway of only 1722ft with gradient of 18.5 %. There is no go-around procedure in this airport.
The airport is considered dangerous, having a difficult approach, an upslope runway and a hill
Nope have not been there.

El Calafate Airport
At last! :thumleft:
Sorry for tha long delay, I have had some hassles logging lately...
We took off from El Calafate after visiting the Perito Moreno glacier (Wich is GROWING by the way) during me and MD's Argentina trip in 2008. We would have landed at Ushuahia but bad weather prevented that leg of out North to South trip.

Here is an interesting place. The main highway cuts across the runway. Where is it?

Gibraltar Airport's single runway is one of very few in the world (and certainly the largest example) to intersect a public road. That's correct: a public road. Operating similarly to a train crossing, traffic travelling along Winston Churchill Avenue in Gibraltar is brought to a halt each time a plane either lands or takes-off, causing the spectacle seen in the photos above.
