    ...how could they miss identify a runway?? It's usually elevated and has long legged models walking up and down it?? Oh my, I just miss identified the runway!!! Don't tell the "regulator"!! They'd probably write me up for operating on a runway without a clearance!!

    I've had trouble back-taxiing on the runway at St. Martin.
    More difficult when looking through binoculars.
    The hotel they lined up on is topless.
    Another one just to the south of Maho Beach too.

    Tit's a good thing to know! Hanlan's beach off to the west end/left side of 24 at YTZ(Bishop/Toronto Island) started out as a nude beach, but these days Jeppesen probably shows towering obstacles('nahv' AIDS) to avoid! Didn't mean to queer this thread. What would you expect when Tinkerbell is PM of Canada eh. :eek::rolleyes:
