I heard curved runways are not unheard of in Alaska as they ocasionally build them on frozen rivers. The runway after the dogleg isn't enough to get airborne and the runway before it isn't so much as to be too fast to make the turn at the correct time. :8

A caption? "Are you sure this is the runway? It looks more like a golfcourse to me."

All you need is a stiff cross-wind from either side to make it really interesting!
I dont fancy the chances of the spectators on the left if things get a little wonky!

Ah the new Finningley airport!

Or whatever stupid name they now want to call it!

Amswer to the trivia quiz. It's either a KZ-3 or a KZ-7. Probably the former.

Official statement from the airport authority:

"Unfortunately, it wasn't realised why the main runway contractor always had a yellow labrador with him until after he had also completed the white lining. We do however now boast the only all weather braille runway in the world"

Instructor to Student, "You would have noticed on your walk-round Mr Wentworth, that the starboard undercarriage was slightly shorter than the port. As you can see, this compensates for the westerly runways peculiarities."

Student to pilot, "Just one thing Sir, what would you advise my actions to be should the runway change whilst I was airborne ?"

Instructor to Student, "Shout TIMBER! As loud as you can Mr Wentworth!"

Newly-qualified pilot Scrungeworth-Diddington faithfully followed his instructor's advice to follow the white line in the middle of the roads for cross-country navigation...with mixed results.
