Where in the World-------

Does the main road run right through the Airports Runway?.
Gibralter of course - The main road from Gibralter to Spain and its check-point, runs right thru the middle of the Airport.
There are plans however to make an underpass in the future.

I don't know if it happens today but way back when...as soon as you got into Spain there would be peddlers trying to sell stuff along the road.
It's funny how we forget until we see something to remind us.

It is good to see you back and posting again, Stewart.

This is amazing about the road going through the runway!

It looks like you got a lot of good photos on your trip. I especially liked the photos of the Barbary Apes.

I remember hearing about that road that goes across the runway. Great shot and being a Dr. Who fan of many, many years, I do love your header shot!

Yes--only in Gibralter... We have alot of crazy things like that though in the USA--so we may have something similar somewhere... ha

One of the taxiways at Nashville International goes over a major highway, but this is the first time I've seen a highway crossing a runway. It's absolutely amazing.
