The Real Airport
The combination of high surrounding terrain, a steep drop-off into a river valley to the south, frequent fog and high winds makes La Nubia Airport (SKMZ) a challenging airport to fly to. It is limited to daylight-only hours of operation and the short runway makes it only suitable for turboprops such as the Fokker 50, ATR 72, and Dash 8.
