Photographer's Note

Madeira or Funchal airport LPMA provides a vital connection from Madeira island to the Portuguese mainland.
Approach to LPMA is difficult and only allowed to pilots with a special Madeira landing instruction, due to changing crosswinds, a lacking instrument landing system and the necessity for a sharp right bend when on finals for runway 23.
This half of the runway is on solid terrain, while the 1000 m extension on the other side (not visible here) rests on a prize awarded concrete structure.
