And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Lukla Airport in Nepal is the world's most dangerous airport with only one way in and one way out and no chance to abort your landing or takeoff.
Dude nailed itReplyDelete
There are places that I have no interest in visiting. I do know some Ghurkas, now retired, who call the place home. Well and good. My sentiments remain.ReplyDelete
Piece of cake... Until it's not. ;-)ReplyDelete
Well. . . . That's terrifying.ReplyDelete
Eff that !ReplyDelete
been into some gravel strips in Norway where the one end of the runway is a 1000' deep fjord and a mountainous rock face on the other. a missed approach is not an option. once decent is initiated one is committed to a landing of some sort. getting one's ducks all in a row before hand is always a good thing. asking before hand if this trip was really necessary is something i have always asked myself.ReplyDelete
Lukla is terrifying as the density altitude is really up there on a hot day.
