Balimo II

Volume:5 (download)
Airport:Balimo II
Country:Papua New Guinea
Description: Balimo is such an interesting airstrip that it is well worth the effort (if not the joy) of flying the approach from each end. If you fly over the water to land, your angle of attack is very steep, but it can be done. Alternatively, fly right, to the water's edge (preferred) and do your approach that way, but expect a sharp right turn onto final. Fly both. Remarkably the runway length and elevation remain exactly the same. Someone's sure to write in and say this cannot be so?
