    I'd seen several video clips on youtube showing people getting blasted around at that location. Pretty obviously known for it.
    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    That's what the tourists are for.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    I am glad they have JBD's on the carriers.

    This is not an issue of unsuspecting pedestrians getting hurt. Everyone who stands there does so with the purpose of getting blasted with engine exhaust. If they installed a blast wall, it would count as an obstacle and require a shortening the runway. A fence on frangible post mounts doesn't count as an obstacle.
