Rock of Gibralter

The entrance to the Mediterranean between Spain and Morocco... Amazing, but true. I'm hoping everyone is staying awake at this airport.









One place you don't want to run a red light.

PS... Thank you 99's for sending me some great shots! 

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. Gr8 Pix! ... Hmmm... I can't figure out why they would build a road across a runway... (Seems like a nightmare for both safety and security.)

  3. T.J. My only guess is they had the airport first and built the town around and figured there was only one way to get to the other town... across the runway. Fascinating.

  5. I've seen roads that go under runways (HGR, near my house has that) but never THROUGH a runway!! I thought a freight train was thing biggest thing you would ever see crossing a road!

  10. It seems to me that the last photo has been manipulated by digital technology. All too easy these days. An awesome set of pictures never the less. I'm particularly intrigued by the fighter stopped on the runway - from the fire apparatus present, it would appear that the jet had some sort of emergency.

    Thanks for this post!
