The World’s Most Convenient Busy Airport

Which is also why it’s probably the most dangerous

Imagine LaGuardia sitting on a little hill in the center of Manhattan and that’s Congonhas and these poor people

A passenger plane has crashed and burst into flames at Brazil’s busiest airport, in the heart of Sao Paulo, killing up to 200 people.
Rescue crews said none of the 176 people on board the Airbus A320 could have survived, while more people were killed on the ground.
The TAM airliner skidded off the runway as it landed in wet weather, shot over a busy road and hit a fuel depot.

I’ve flown in and out of there many times and it always amazes me. You feel like you are literally dodging the 30-40 story buildings as you come in to land.
Update: The best way to describe Congonhas is an aircraft carrier, that’s what landing there is like.
