That approach looks like a blast to fly.  I'd be flying it with my eyes closed though!

Is that a legal spot to be in? A terrorist could shoot out the wheels with a handgun. If someone were seen in a spot like that in the U.S., guards would be all over them.
I would be a little worried about that landing. Look out for downdrafts.  undecided

No closer than SXM, an airport to which several US carriers make daily approaches.

A terrorist could also stand on my road and shoot me in my living room. Stop being paranoid.

The U.S. is  a completely different story relative to a lot of  Latin American countries, most of these countries simply don't have a security system set up in such a manner that would allow for "guards" to be "all over them" . Quite frankly I think that Honduras has more relevant things  to focus on than worrying about a bunch of spotters being possible terrorists. Sorry if I sound like a D!ck but just wanted to give my opinion.

the real messed up thing about that approach, atleast with AAL, you watch a video and then your qualified for it, they dont even allow you to get a check ride and its a captain only landing.

True... I guess that's the sad thing about the world these days. You can't practice aviation related hobbies without drawing suspicion or needing a license. I just hope they never decide to make ATC off limits to civilians, or, god help us, scramble the transmissions.

I think I read somewhere that they've since bulldozed that hill so the approach isn't quite as exciting any more.
