A lot of runways that they say aren't long enough for a 747, aren't long enough for a LOADED 747. We used to get the Prime Minister of Japan coming
to Hawaii, and he'd land on Maui, which can't take a 747. So they would drop him off there, fly the plane to Oahu, fly back and pick him up, and
return to Oahu so they could get enough fuel to fly to wherever they were going. They could barely get out of there with enough fuel to make it to
the West Coast of the US.
