I've flown in and out of Funchal. It is pretty scary. The airport was built in the 60s on the side of a mountain and there was just enough space to build the runway. When 747s came along, they had to extend the runway... on stilts... over the motorway. The main problem for pilots is that there's a lot of strong air currents pulling the plane all over the place.

But, as a Brit, that wasn't the scariest part. When we came in to land, the light behind the letter E in the 'Madeira' wasn't working.

The extra packed underwear probably got put on the wrong plane anyways.
