Famous airport because of the accident Apr 27, 2010
Congonhas was the old Sao Paulo International Airport but years ago it turn into domestic Flights and leave Guarulhos international ones.

As you can imagine looks really old, but is well conservated.

It's crazy because it is located in the midle of the city on the top of a hill. Sometimes you're walking on the street and suddently a plane aproaches you a few meters above your head.

UPDATE: That's why a couple of years ago there was a really serious accident with a plane on a rainy day while landing. The plane cross one of the main roads of Sao Paulo and hits a building...So sad

In Denpasar Bali, the airport is just next to the sea ;-)
So, if the plane fails to take off, it will swim ;D
