More Rugged Runways

Continuing yesterday’s theme of very rugged runways around the world, here’s a video of a BAE jet departing from the famous Paro airport in Bhutan.

The departure points you at a mountain. To avoid crashing into the mountain, you must maneuver through a series of valleys while climbing out.

This must be somewhat harrowing to fly. My hat goes off to the captains who fly for Royal Bhutan Airlines.
