    Gibraltar Airport - Airports can be scary places for a few aspects, but Gibraltar Airport beats them all for one important reason. Because of limited space, the main runway passes through one of the roads of the area. Weirdly enough, planes wait until the cars pass by, while the cars remain still until the planes take off. Spectacular as it may be, it is also a bit dangerous, so next time you drive through Gibraltar, watch out for the soaring airplanes.

    Gibraltar Airport or North Front Airport is the civilian airport that serves the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. It is owned by the Ministry of Defence for use by the Royal Air Force as RAF Gibraltar. Civilian operators use the airport; currently the only scheduled flights operate to the United Kingdom and Spain. Passengers depart and arrive through the civilian operated terminal. Gibraltar Airport has the distinction of being the closest airport to the city that it serves, being only 500 metres from Gibraltar’s city centre. In 2004 the airport handled 314,375 passengers and 380 tonnes of cargo. Gibraltar Airport is one of the few Class A airports in the world. Winston Churchill Avenue (the main road heading towards the land border with Spain) intersects the airport runway, so consequently has to be closed every time a plane lands or departs.

    The only road between Spain and the Republic of Gibraltar crosses GIbraltar's Airport Runway. The road is closed when planes land. This is the way I entered Gibraltar! It is by far the coolest way to enter a country!
