25 Insanely Dangerous Airports Around The World

I love flying. Seeing the world from the clouds and traveling to foreign places is always a magical experience. But like any good meal, there’s always a bill to pay at the end. And for flying, it sometimes comes with a treacherous landing. While it’s only just a bit jarring when flying into a “normal” airport, just wait until you see these death defying approaches. You may never fly again.
