The first candidate

:shock: C-5 in Lukla (VNLK)! I landed her there and in the image, she is exactly, where she came to a halt! :shock:
I guess, that qualifies! Not that I landed there, but that I even tried!

Is Lukla the same airport that does not have a missed approach? because the first missed approach fix is an appointment with God?

OMG!
Outstanding craziness certainly that is!

I like it!!

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Think about it, a C-5 with little load (if you have no load she has her problems with over-climbing at full flaps, but lets say 10 to 15 tons, just to make her not too light and 50% fuel for the good measure) she has a landing speed of 105-110 knots, that's less than an ATR. So all depends on getting the lining up right and come in just 50-100 feet higher than the threshold, get those reversers going in the right split second (they switch on the C-5 only if throttle is zero) and stand on the brakes like there is no tomorrow :lol:
