As it says
Access route / backup runway?
@wharris Since the airfields would be hit immediately during war, most of our European allies have alternate "highway" airfields, including parts of the autobahn.
The Luftwaffe used the autobahn extensively during WWII.
Nato forces used to have a yearly exercise during the cold war using parts of the autobahn as alternative airfields.
They've landed C130's on it, and alledgedly, they can operate C5's from it.
I know More..in the 70's, many sections of US interstates were secretly designated for use as possible alternative airfields in the event of WWIII. Less..
I actually had heard of some of that. did not know we actually trained on those...
Thanks for the info.
speeding and no plates.
Licence, registration, and please get out of the car.
They do that in some parts of Europe.
Some roads are like backup runways.
FOD WALKDOWN ! HIT IT !
Sweden is big on road runways.
That looks so clean, I bet you could eat road kill off it
@Airedale Mmmm...now you're making me hungry.
@T0M65 Finland, I got couple nice HD uploads of the air force practicing on these highways if you wanna check out.
U lost bro? Lol. Back in the 70's, we had had an F4 with a fuel issue land on a two lane Farm to Market road. Big time fun watching him takeoff later that day.
well within the speedlimit.
The US military shut down this highway to be used for alternative airstrip landing and takeoff training.
@morganson281 -Just an example. There are roads like this all over the world ;)
New patrol for speeding tickets..
Do they have to obey the speed limit? Just wondering.
Cars in the skies and planes in the streets. The future is good.
Going to get some milk, like a boss.
Screw hybrid cars. I want one of those for my commute!
I would be slightly confused if that came towards me
Ummm I think you're supposed to fly them.
Check the owner's manual.
This is common in Europe.
