Thats gravel. I am more than aware of the 737's capabilities. Such models had a special vortex fence on the engines cowlings leading edge to help prevent the intake of gravel into the engines. The Nose gear also had a special deflector.Originally Posted by John Boyle
What I am talking about is a runway that is not on Terra firma. It is merely a strip of semi level ice bulldozed or in some cases hand dug with shovels on top of an ice glacier in the antarctic or arctic.
Such a runways in incredibly rough. I have only ever known props to use them.
Its possible a 737-200 could land on it, but I don't think it could stop in time due to the speed.
