I was air america pilot here I 1980s. Best to be well trained before arrival. Mountains 3 sides. Severe drop off cliffs on both ends. There is no go around unless you are in a fighter. Approach straight in land to west take off to east. Always low ceiling and fog mist. Surrounded by river. We could get loaded c130 in here. Barely. Had a leased dehavilland that was better and safer. Oh yes there is a volcano off the east end about 7 miles outnon otherwise flat terrain. This is a real got ya if you are not paying attention. Also we are missing a c130 and crew out there somewhere. If you find wreckage report it.
