Another airport which is slightly traumatic to land on, is at Gibraltar, both ends lead out into water, so it makes no difference which way you are coming in, or going out. You fly in over water, and take off over water. Again, it is to stop as quick as you can.
So Corfu Airport, minor detail compared to some around the world.
Bruce, you wanted to know about Gibraltar Airport, then here you go. Also if you have it, take a look at Google Earth and zoom in on Gibraltar, it gives a wonderful shot of the Rock and its airport.
