Video of Méribel landing !

Here’s an interesting little movie by a fellow pilot landing at my ‘home’ airfield, Altiport de Méribel (LFKX).

He first flies over the runway to announce his arrival, then heads east towards Corchevel, turning north, west and then south again on final.
You’ll notice how difficult the short runway is to spot. Actually the fairway of the golf course running down from the runway isa good indicator to line up with the runway.
Notice also there is no ‘go-around’ option with the slanted runway and the dike (and mountain) behind it.
