Gisborne Airport & and the rail track that runs through it

Still in New Zeeland, still talking about scary airports. This time, we’re tackling Gisborne Airport, as it is also considered to be one of the most difficult airports in the world. But this one isn’t built in the mountains or on ice, this one has nothing less than a….railway intersecting its runway at a certain point.

It has three grass runways and the MAIN one, so, as you have probably assumed, landings would require accurate coordination when it comes to approaching trains. For this particular reason, it’s not so uncommon for planes or trains to suffer delays.

  1. I flew 20 yrs. Ago, not because I wanted to but because I had to !!!! & It took ALOT for me to get through it !! Luckily they were short flights , less than 2 hrs. After that I never flew again & NEVER WILL !!! I HATE FLYING !!!

    1. You are so right! I live in San Diego. I landed on a United flight here in the nineties so hard that trays and other items fell onto the floor in the galley. The absolute worst landing I have ever had into San Diego. Oh yes I forgot to mention the buildings you fly in between. The running joke “We could see what people were eating at Mr. A’s.”

    Terrific airport—magnificent landing views. Got some of my best pics out the window of the plane while it was landing. Wouldn’t hesitate to go to Telluride again (sigh) don’t quite have the cash, though!

  3. as a passenger the 3 NY metro airports are the scariest. Between JFK, LaGuardia and Newark,(nt to mention Teterboro) that’s a lot of airplanes that air traffic control has to keep from bumping into each other
