The Guardian – Article on Scary Airports

The UK newspaper, The Guardian, published this terrific short photo essay on scary airports around the world. Pictured: the approach to the runway at St. Barths. My friend Kent Lewis, owner of Uptown Billiards here in Portland, wrote this article for Flying Adventures magazine on his experience learning to land there.

I’ll add these two photos I shot a couple of years ago in the Seychelles.

This one is landing at Desroches Island. If you go off the other end of the runway, well, you’ll get all sandy for about 40 feet, then you’ll get wet.
