Twenty Nine Palms

Volume:15 (download)
Airport:Twenty Nine Palms
Country:USA
Description: Twenty Nine Palms. Sounds more like a religious outfit rather than an airport doesn't it? This is an easy approach, so why include it in the collection? Because the runway surface is composed entirely of steel. That's right folks - steel! Why? I can only imagine that this region is subject to flooding and the runway acts as a huge drainage system so it can be used all year round. Expect an 8124ft steel drain on an elevation of 2055ft.
