In the And-I-thought-I’d-seen-it-all category are these photos from Gibraltar, forwarded to me by my colleague Neelam Mathews in New Delhi


They are of the airport runway in Gibraltar, the tiny British enclave where space is precious. I’ve not been to Gibraltar, but it reminds me of provisions Singapore has taken to use the main highway between the central city and Changi Airport.


Opposing traffic is separated by planters that can be shoved aside to clear a landing strip, should a national emergency require one.


Small cities frequently have to make do. Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak Airport required a sharp right turn on approach and produced wonderful pictures of aircraft on final flying between high rises. I always wished I could have sat in the jump seat to watch. Moving the international airport onto an expanded Chek Lap Kok island in the bay took the drama away

Intéressant n'est ce pas comme concept d'utilisation de l'espace Wink

Bonne soirée
