territory off the southern coast of Spain. Here planes fly out of an airport that is bisected by the busiest road in the entire Peninsula.As if car traffic isn’t enough to worry about for any pilot touching down in Gibraltar ,they also have to contend with a 6000 foot runaway with water on either side of it .
