Visiting Honduras in March 2018
« on: March 03, 2018, 08:16:38 pm »

Honduras is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea. The largest city in Honduras is Tegucigalpa with a population of approximately 1,126,534. The History Channel program Most Extreme Airports ranks the Toncontin Internation Airport as the second most dangerous airport in the world. The approach to the airport is considered to be one of the most difficult in the world to all aircraft, especially in inclement weather conditions.

I will be flying into the airport for a visit to Tegucipgalpa tomorrow and can update this thread periodically with pictures and observations.

Flying into Tegucigalpa, Honduras from the US, the pilot may alert the passengers as the plane passes over Belize.







Though the airport is listed as one the most dangerous, the landing turned out spectacularly uneventful and rather boring.





The immigration line may have been longer than usual due to 4 airplanes arriving in a 30 minute period.

Zoomed out.





The airport and stadium are visible from the Cristo del Picacho monument.
