Final Approach to the World’s Most Dangerous Landing Spot

  • Aired: 02/22/2017

  • Rating: TV-PG
World’s most dangerous landing in the Himalayas – this is the final approach to Paro. Paro is the capital of Bhutan, a magical Himalayan lost kingdom. Landing here is far from easy: it lacks the modern radar equipment that helps guide planes in, so pilots land manually using visual landmarks. They fly through a narrow valley with a tight turn –the runway only becomes visible at the last moment.
