3. Chicago Midway International Airport, Illinois

No. 3 on our list is the Midway International Airport, in Chicago, Illinois. It might not seem like that big of a deal when you look at a picture for a few seconds, but in reality, getting in and out of this midwestern center by aircraft is very tricky due to the airport’s narrow runway and unpredictable weather.

Moreover, a grounded plane would get lost in the maze of 4 overlapping runways and taxiways. And let’s not forget about the fact that several fatal accidents occur on the icy runway every winter. For example, there have been more than 30 accidents on its runways, which put it on our list of airports that are dangerous.

  1. Add the airport on Santa Catalina Island in California where you land and take-off on a runway that drops precipitously at its abrupt ending. Also, check out the airport in Palomar in Southern California where the runway is gravel and has a big hump in it (at least this was the case in the early 80s).

  2. Used to fly into Midway almost weekly. It is so compact that planes almost touch wings when taxiing but the worst part is that it is surrounded by r esidential neighborhood and the planes land and take off directly over building roofs. Very tight.

    John Wayne: take offs are not a big deal if you know what to expect. Always takeoff toward the West and over the water, climb fast and then cut power and fall about 1000′ until the plane is past Lido Isle and over the ocean.
