Infinite Flight Wonders - A Growing List

Hello, IFC

If you are like me, then you likely fly between JFK, LAX and LHR with the occasional small GA airport. In my opinion, this can get quite repetitive. For all of you that are looking for some beautiful, niche and hidden airports to visit in IF, this is the list for you.

In this list, there are currently 54 airports in Every Continent. Please expand this list using the form at the bottom of this page.

ICAO: LPMA
Type: Airport
Coordinates: 32°41′39″N 16°46′41″W

Münster Osnabrück

The Approch to Runway 25 is a bit special as the Aircrafts Turn near the city Osnabrück to runway heading then they pass the Teutoburger Forrest low and continue decendingvall the way passing an German Autobahn and directly after that an canal and because of that canal and old regulations the tuch down point is not at the begining of the runway. Because those old rules say that an Aircraft isn’t allowed to fly lower that an minimum altitude above an canal as there were lot of smoke from thoses ships. And it still applies for today.
