As most people know, the Approach into Honduras’ famous Tegucigalpa airport is quite ridiculous. I have never flown to this airport before and thought it would be fun today as a new year celebration. I nearly crashed and overran, but by some miracle got the Center line perfect. An absolutely thrilling approach which I will definitely do again.

Just before making the turn to the runway
Just starting my turn!
At this point I thought I was going to crash
Cockpit view (looks ridiculous 😂)
A nice shot I got of the landing!
Wow! I love when planes do a turn last minute on a difficult approach!:D Well done!:)
Thanks! I’ve always wanted to do this approach, I never thought it was this hard haha
Ha ha! Good one!🙂😊 I’m an expert at paro’s airport to turn last second! It’s amazing!:)
Ah yes paro! I haven’t done that yet, hats off to you for being able to pull it off!
Aww thanks! You should try it! It does take a bit of practice though!;)
I’m pretty sure you’ll nail it in a few tries!:D
Yeah we will see! I’ll definitely try it soon, it’s an amazing airport
Done this a couple times - first time completely bottled it beyond belief, second time nailed it.
