Belly Land Here

I heard about Metrojet Flight 7K9268 crashing in the Sinai Peninsula and decided to check out the airport it took off from, Sharm el-Sheikh International, on Google Maps. Not much to see but I did notice something I'd never seen nor heard of.

If you zoom in to either end of the strip the pin is centered on you'll see what I'm talking about.

Yep, their very own dedicated 'Belly Landing' strip. Just the kind of thing I'd want to see when landing. And I'm not sure, but it looks as if it's been used. Hmm.
