Final Approach Then, Lukla Airport, Nepal
The year 2000. Final approach to Lukla airfield. The short airstrip goes uphill and the pilot pulls up at the last second to land. The uphill slope helps slow the airplane. I was lucky enough to have a seat on the airplane right behind the cockpit. Looking out from the cockpit like this gives the impression that we're diving into the hillside. The runway was a dirt airstrip that was paved the following year.
