Telluride: Approaching to land on Runway 9 at Telluride, Colorado (TEX), while flying a Citation Bravo. This airport’s high elevation (over 9000’ above sea level) and even higher surrounding mountains make it a one-way airport (meaning all landings arrive from the west and all departures takeoff to the west). Notice the pronounced slope of the runway (from both ends). All this serves to illustrate why the Colorado mountain airports can be some of the most challenging in the world.
