I remember Aspen, but never crewed in nor out. It looked like it had the potential to be exciting.

Almost a nonexistent final. That would be fun to fly.

Same approach (on a spectacularly beautiful day) from the outside: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv_c6vA8DXE.

Really cool approach. The plates are here: http://www.caa.is/media/files/AD_2_BIIS.pdf. Scroll down to near the end of the document. The approaches bring you down to 500 feet (GNSS or NDB/DME) or 1100 feet (NDB only) to get below the clouds. You then need to make a 90 degree turn in visual conditions to get to the airport. I'd love to fly it in my Bonanza! :D

Not a new definition, but a good example of a short to non existent final. A great video Thanks very much.

The scenery is breathtaking. That is what flying is all about, I think.

Nice video, there's a similar one floating around out there with a Widroe (I think I spelled it correctly) Dash8 into snow cover terrain
