KETCHIKAN- A national newspaper has included Ketchikan International Airport in the list of the world's 10 most thrilling airports for scary landings.

USA Today published the list, as compiled by Airfarewatchdog.dog.
Also on the list are an ice runway in Antarctica, which could potentially crack under a plane's weight, and an airstrip in Africa where planes taxi off a cliff and fall a bit before catching air.
Ketchikan made the list because of a short runway, which is near the mountains and the ocean.
Borough Mayor Dave Kiffer says it's unlikely Ketchikan is one of the top 10 most thrilling airports in the world.
In fact, he's not even sure Ketchikan makes the top 10 list for Alaska.
