My pulse raced as Delta Flight 737 zigzagged over the mountains toward the airport runway. With a resounding thump, the plane dropped and hit the ground. It sped along the short tarmac with a loud whooshing sound and the pilot veered to a stop. Passengers sighed with relief while erupting into raucous applause. We just landed at Toncontin International Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, which boasted one of the shortest and most frightening airstrips in the world. It was my first time landing on the perilous tarmac, and I applauded along with my fellow passengers.
