Mango Mango International Airport
« on: October 06, 2008, 09:54:11 PM »
The prop jets that land on Ta'u island have to be piloted by specially trained pilots to make a steep landing on a short grassy airfield. Just when you think you are part of a kamikazee plot the plan thumps and brakes wildly and you jump out quickly not sure what just happened, but it seems you are alive. When I was there was one small shade shelter made of tree branches where anyone meeting the plane might sit. Mango Mango International Airport is a variant on the Pago Pago International airport the big jets can land on on Tutuila Island.
