Video of plane landing at Gran Canario Airport
This video is taken from the cockpit of the plane as it approaches Gran Canario near Las Palmas, the capital, turns to port (left) and flies down the East coast before doing a very hard turn to the starboard (right)) comming over the coast near Castillo del Romeral. As the plane levels out after the turn you can just make out 2 dark wide vertical lines just below the sea. These are the 2 runways. The plane will land on the inland runway, the one nearest the terminal building. Notice the vast arrays of wind turbines, the main dual carriageGC1 highway that runs from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to just inland of all the main resorts in the South from Playa del Ingles to Puertode Morgan
