Ice Runway

By Rashi Saxena Location: Antarctica Date Established: February 7th, 1994 Architect: reconstructed by team of people every year This airport only operates during certain seasons of the year, from SpringDecember. The ice begins to break from December, so planes must be sent to the two other ice runways. Any size plane can land on these runways because of their large size. The weight of the plane sometimes causes the ice to sink, especially during the winter season, so lasers monitor the ice level as a plane lands.
