Last month, Popular Mechanics compiled a list of the world’s 18 “strangest” airports.
While some airports made this list for having a golf course in between two large runways (Bangkok) or for the entire landmass of the airport being larger than an entire neighbouring country (Dammam), most of the airports on this list were chosen for having uniquely positioned short runways often near bodies of water.
Check out the pictures and embedded videos in the article and let us know in the comments below which airport is your favourite.
My favourite is the Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport airport on Saba in the Netherlands Antilles. Check out the video below to see why–watch until the very end to see just how short the runway is.
