This is what would happen if you tried to land a Boeing 777 at the smallest airport in the world

A very dangerous airport

Located on the island of Saba in the Dutch Caribbean, Juancho E. Yrausquien Airport is considered the commercial airport with the shortest track in the world. This is because the airport is located at one end of the island, surrounded by cliffs and rocky areas, so the final runway could only be 396 meters long.

This forces that both the takeoff and the landing of the planes have to be perfect, since an excess in the route would exceed the runway and take the plane directly to the sea. Normally the planes that usually take land there are the Twin Otter and the BN-2 Islander, but the good one of Swiss001 has wanted to do more tests to see what type of aircraft could land on the island.

Little track for so much plane

To this end, he has obviously had the help of the X-Plane 11 simulator, since with the game he has managed to transport himself to the Juancho E. Yrausquien airport and practice take-off and landing tasks with a wide variety of airplane models. As expected, the smallest and lightest passed the test (not without complications and the occasional “oops”), while the largest succumbed to the power of the island.

As you can see in the video, a plane as common as the Boeing 737-800 is unable to slow down enough, so it ends disastrously rushing down the small cliff. And more of the same with the Boeing 777, of course.

In its channel you can find other videos with very curious feats, such as the attempt of emergency landing on a Pacific island, tests at another small airport, or the curious Papua-Guinea curve track.
