A C-17 military cargo plane from Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage does a flyover of the Juneau International Airport with the mountains of Douglas Island in the background on Thursday.
Pilot: Wow! That was the shortest runway I have ever seen!
Co-pilot: Yeah! And the widest one, too!
happy to be single
A nasty letter
How can it be a flyover if the wheels are down? Maybe this was a touch-and-go? Or maybe, as Skirkz intimated, the pilot got scared because it was such a short runway?
The runway is plenty long. It's my understanding that the runway can even accommodate a 747 or a C5.
Like he approached the runway at a 90* angle and pulled up???
