Madeira International Airport Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal
Although Madeira is a hugely well-known tourist destination, its airport on the Portuguese island is a hazard. The runway was nearly increased in 2000, from 9124 feet (2780 meters) however, this extension was constructed on a foundation supported by 180 columns that are positioned upon the water.
