Pterodactyls, Rocs and pieces of Skylab are regrettably long absent from our skies – as are the signs warning of their presence. And apart from the lovely Wycliffe Well, Aussie UFO sightings are rare.
And Superman is a myth. Isn’t he??
So … the danger of injury from large flying objects either in, or falling from the sky should therefore be negligible in this day and age, right?
Right, that is, unless you’re on Lord Howe Island where the signs warn of a new threat from the skies …
The 1 km (~1095 yard) long airstrip bisects the island at its narrowest point. The sea’s at its western end, and the road to the island’s southern parts squeezes between the eastern end of the airstrip and the sea.
There’s not much room to get past anything on the road, and the airstrip can be challenging to land on if the weather conditions aren’t perfect.
That’s why there are warning signs.
Which can mean only one thing if you’re on that road and there’s a plane taking off towards you or about to land behind you!
