Funchal / Madeira! Extreme Aviation Spectacular! DVD

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
Experience loads of hair-raising airline ops at what is widely considered Europe's most dangerous airport. This 90-minute DVD showcases air carrier operations at the Funchal/Madeira Airport (LPFU) in the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. The aerodrome gained notoriety for its short single runway (originally just 1600m [5,249 ft]) surrounded by high terrain and ocean that has contributed to a series of mishaps over the years. As a result, the runway was initially expanded to 1800m (5,906 ft) before a feat of architectural excellence successfully constructed an extension platform out over the ocean, which nearly doubled the airstrip's length to 2,781m (9,124 ft).

In addition to the airport's distinct architecture, the video treats viewers to plenty of white knuckle transport takeoffs & landings that include such challenges as battling extreme crosswinds. Filmed from multiple camera angles and includes subtitled narration. An eye-opening look at a one-of-a-kind airport that will enthrall pilots, travelers, and thrill seekers alike.
