Cook Islands warns jet blast thrillseekers to stay away

0

WELLINGTON: Airport authorities in the Cook Islands on Thursday warned thrillseekers to stay away from their runway’s jet blast zone after three tourists were injured when a plane was taking off. The main road in the tiny Pacific nation passes by the bottom of the runway and daring plane-spotters often stand in the wash of jet engines, clinging to the airport’s fence as aircraft hit maximum thrust for ascent. However, stopping the practice may be difficult, with the national tourism authority including the jet blast in a recent marketing video showing “the top 10 reasons to come to the Cook Islands.”
