Kansai Airport in Japan

The airport in Osaka is unique in that it is surrounded by water on all sides and built on an artificial island in the waters of Osaka Bay. The construction of such a difficult architectural structure is not accidental, there has been a "race" of technological progress in Japan for several decades. The Japanese decided that it was rational to use any available piece of land. At the moment, there are no analogues of Kansai Airport as such a bold, original and difficult solution.

Courchevel Airport

This unique airfield in France is located right in the middle of the Alps. The runway is located at an angle of 18, so at the same time it is not exactly a strip, but rather an undulating road, with difficult weather conditions. Takeoffs and landings at such an airfield are a kind of attraction and an adrenaline adventure. Only small planes and helicopters under the control of pilots specially qualified for this place land here.
