March DotM!

Airport- LXGB
Gibraltar International Airport
Division: Open

Howdy folks! I hope you all had a great mini vacation in the French Alps, this month you'll be heading just a little bit further south, to the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula. You won't be headed to Spain, however, as Gibraltar is actually a British Overseas Territory.
The tiny peninsula of Gibraltar was given to Great Britain in 1713, as part of the Peace of Utrecht which was signed to end the War of the Spanish Succession. This history has caused some major tension however, as Spain has tried to retake the area by force in 1727, and again from 1779-1783. To this day, Spain maintains a claim to Gibraltar, although the current position seems to have softened a bit.
The airport itself is located on the isthmus connecting Gibraltar to the rest of Spain, and is claimed to be annexed from the original Treaty of Utrecht. It was formally opened in 1939, as an emergency Royal Navy airfield, on neutral territory occupied by British army barracks. Due to the small overall size of Gibraltar, the famous Rock Of Gibraltar, and the political issues listed above, this is a rather tricky airport to land at. Winston Churchill Avenue runs directly across the runway, as the runway is actually wider than the isthmus. Plans to build a bypass tunnel have been submitted, although construction has not been completed. The Rock can produce some rather strong turbulence effects, and due to airspace restrictions, a hard right turn may be required on approach to the airport- think the old Hong Kong Kai Tak runway 13 approach.
