2 Airplanes on the Runway - Face to Face?

Sponsored

Hello; While it does look a bit crazy, its standard procedure at airports like Madeira where landing and departing aircraft have to back track, due to having no parallel taxiways. My local airport at Inverness, Scotland has the same set up for departures on runway 23. Both the Norwegian and Corendon flight crew are familiar with this procedure. Great capture, exert timing and a quality video, so different form others. This is normal case and this incident is quite common  on  those airports which have only one runway lacking full parallel taxiway. TIA of Nepal is another example. Nothing unusual about this at all. But the runway is a bit interesting. You wouldn't want to land a little bit short on that one. It probably adds a bit of anxiety when landing in bad weather.
