A healthy reminder of what they mean when they say the flight is the easy part, its the getting up and down that's terrifying.

That's nothing. I think Hong Kong is the place to watch out for:

That's a very long-winded ATC clearance there, not at all like those in Flight Simulator 2004...

That's crazy! Total pucker factor.

Thankfully I didn't have to experience that when I was there in 2000. We flew into Guatemala City, then worked our way over and down. The most insane experience was being in a "Chicken Bus" on a terrible, twisting mountain road heading to Antigua with a driver that thought he was Mario Andretti. Scary.

Oh, and Honduras is interesting to say the least. It deserves at a couple of days. Particularly the Mayan ruins of Copan.

Little bit of crosswind, but he put it down perfectly, so what's the insane part? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

You can't have a better touchdown right on the marker, and centered too. If I'm going into there, that guy is da man. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif
