Video: Traffic Intersects the Gibraltar Airport Runway

This video taken at the Gibraltar airport isn’t the most exciting to watch, but it does illustrate an interesting situation: a major road intersects the runway. I ran across this when we landed in Goa a few days before New Year’s Eve. Goa’s airport is tiny, and only has a three-plane capacity at the terminal. With late December being a prime time for visiting the wonderful Goan beaches, planes quickly landed where they’d sit on an adjacent strip of tarmac while waiting their turn to dock at the overflowing terminal. Our GoAir flight was no different, and as we waited, I’d watch cars, motorcycles, and even dogs cross the thin strip of runway in between the arrival and departures. Crazy!
