Richard Gurbin submitted this photo and note: “Coming into Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica. A 20-minute flight in my Cessna 206 over stunningly beautiful country saves a one-day trek on foot. This park runway is 500 feet long x 50 feet wide … ocean on departure to the west and 500 feet of clearing prior to touchdown from the east. Thanks to onshore breezes, great landing technique, and a rutty runway surface, the PIC used only half of the available runway! My wife and I are very happy we did it once, but we are not looking to do it again anytime soon. Takeoff was easy and relaxed by comparison!”
