This video is obviously sped up, but it’s absolutely gorgeous. See the approach to Runway 11 at the Milford Sound airport, MFN, in New Zealand. It is in the fjords of New Zealand, called the Fiordland region, and is used mainly for flightseeing and tourist operators.
Runways 11/29 are 2565 feet long and the elevation of the airport is only 3 meters, or 10 feet above sea level. MFN is a small but very busy airport. This is not the first time a video of an approach and landing in New Zealand is featured in an amazing video – check out the amazing instrument flight into Queensland, also New Zealand. It’s equally stunning!
