Picture of the Month

Approach to Runway 5, Kalaupapa, Molokai
, a photo by LCDR Chris J Arends
Proper airspeed on approach is critical at Kalaupapa, so you don't float excessively prior to touchdown. When large northern swells are present, the approach end for Rwy 23 gets wet from breaking waves, and it's one of the few runways in the world where surf awareness is an issue.
