  2. So, In Gibraltar can’t they just build an UNDERPASS for the traffic? Geez what brilliant person designed this anyway???? Are they short on land? Sometimes stupidity simply amazes me. And they are worried about undressing you at checkpoints in the airport so you can get in a plane that crosses traffic. You should be more worried about them then they should be about you……Nice.

    1. Of course they are short of land? It’s a rock! So short of land that the inside is hollowed out and a town! The air strip is the bit of land, the isthmus attaching the rock to the main land which is an other country.
      And where is your sense of adventure?
      It is quite thrilling to land as if in the sea and hitting the runway at its very beginning and then all flaps down for maximum braking!
      So the access road is closed the way one closes a railway crossing. What’s the big deal? Dah!

    2. It’s not much fun being in one of those cars either. First you drive across the runway and then you endure the Spanish customs agents who like to delay and inconvenience people in protest against English “occupation” of Gibralter.

    3. The whole country of Gibraltar is 2.6 square miles in contrast Dallas/Fort Worth Airport is 27 square miles. So they do have a shortage of land.

    4. Gibraltar is always fun as you try and get grandma and her wheelchair across the runway as a 737 is landing

    “Airplanes from all over the world” do not land on Barra. Loganair is the only airline operating from cities in Scotland to Barra, and, if the weather is stormy, the flight just doesn’t take off (except for medical energencies).
