    They are missing Lukla.
    Of course FS has its own brand of scary runways. Like the ones with terrain errors around them. My favorite is one in FS9 that has the strip 400 feet above the airport on a narrow rise of land.
    Then we have the crater approach. I hope you dont get dizzy...

    Oh cool they mention Toncontin in Tegucigalpa that is a day to day operation for us can get really scary sometimes! Small runway in a hole basically and the only way to do it is in a visual approach!! Basically you fly between hills, trees and houses! A lot of fun... 6000 ft runway too did I mention that?

    Regards,
