The World's 9 Most Dangerous Landing Strips (PHOTOS)

We've all seen our fair share of landing strips: big rugged ones, skinny, barely-there ones and some that just look too dangerous to approach. The purpose of this information isn't to deter you from going to these destinations. None of these places are Jurassic Park, and you'll very likely set foot on the ground unscathed. Just make a visual note of where the barf bag is located, take a nice deep breath and hope the strip you're landing on isn't feeling too cranky.

OTP's List of the 10 Most Dangerous Landing Strips presents some plane-eating, monstrous strips around the world. Wear protection; this is going to be a rough ride.
