Florence Airport in Italy. The runway is super small. I believe the airports biggest aircraft is a A320, but loaded lightly.

It was a really long time ago, back in the late 80s, Bardufoss, Norway and was probably a Dash-8

Military wise, probably Abu Ghraib … It had a permanent LZ. Instead of the usual convoy, was able to snag a UH-60 Blackhawk flight from Camp Victory. The largest helicopters I’ve seen there were MH-53s, CH-46s and MI-24s. You could probably also land 2 or 3 V-22s there

I guess noone in the community flies to small airports

I’m sure a lot of people do. But more often than not a lot of people will drive 2 hours to a bigger airport rather use their regional airport in the US to save a few hundred dollars.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (KAVP)

International Airport is Peoria Airport. The airport baggage claim is so small and the terminal gate waiting area is compact. CRJs and ERJs usually operate out of their. They used to fly the Allegiant MD-80 as well but now they put A319 out of their now

But now I fly here because this is the best airport in the world
