DOMINICA: Douglas Charles Airport closed

The Douglas Charles Airport has been closed temporarily due to inclement weather conditions.

The Ministry of Public Works and Ports said it has also been advised that there are currently two landslides on the Nicholas Liverpool Highway affecting vehicular traffic flow in that area. It said members of the public should use the Castle Bruce/Kalinago Territory road to access areas beyond Belles.

The ministry said it is making every effort to bring the road situation back to normalcy and will advise further once the highway and airport are reopened.

    Remember flying around and around and around trying to find an opening in the fog so we could land?

    The worst part of my several landings there was the approach descending into a narrow valley at treetop level….and the end of the short runway stops about 25 yards from dumping you into the ocean. Kudos to any pilot who navigates these landings! Yeeehaaa!

    Excellent engineering works, I bet you they got paid like Maloney here with those dry rotting buildings in the Grotto and Coverley.
