Placencia Airstrip Caution Sign

As I pass by the Airstrip almost daily to go to the Village, I barely even notice this sign... but the tourists just love it. I bet it is the most photographed sign on the entire Peninsula.

What is for certain is the need to pay attention to the warning... sometimes the planes are fully loaded and need every bit of that airstrip that we drive around the end of so casually !

a few years back there was a small truck around here that had a big dent in the roof from a tropic flight's wheel!
a local electrician was driving and had a guy in the back. the guy in the back about s**t himself!
the pilot said, "hmm,, i thought i felt something."
