5. Yeager Airport, West Virginia
One of the most dangerous airports in the United States is Yeager Airport, which is situated in West Virginia. Located at the peak of the mountain, the one runway that exists is shockingly short. If the pilot makes a mistake during takeoff, the only option is to crash into one of the cliffs.
If you’re a passenger in one of the planes that take off from this airport, you’re more likely to feel scared and even panicked, as the runway is on a level hill with sheer drops of 300 feet on all sides.
We’re not trying to sound dramatic, but there is a risk of falling over the edge if the pilots overshoot the runway. The mountain also has a history of mudslides, such as the one that occurred in 2015 and swept a large portion of land down into the valley below.
…So if you have anything to do with this place, make sure you’re extra careful!
