Widerø (wideroe.no) is the Norwegian short range airline flying between the short runway airports in Norway. Hats off to the pilots, as long as the cross wind isn’t too strong, they fly. Here is a few shots taken of the flight coming in from and taking off to Bodø (Bodoe).

Observe the wind socks (the red and white wind indicators by the side of the runway. They were pretty stiff today…

Now, the runway is officially appr. 800 meters long, but in reality, RWY 01 is 110 meters longer than the official number, and the north end (RWY 19) is 20 meters extra, so the strip is 910 meters long. Nice to know if you’re coming in a little heavy (FYI flyboys and -girls). Just check it out in Google Earth or Google Maps!
