Reagan National ranked as having one of the scariest runways

      (WJLA) - Flying into Reagan National Airport can be nerve wracking - or at least that's what The Weather Channel thinks.

      Reagan{}is listed as having one of the world's scariest{}runways due to several no-fly zones over our nation's capital which require pilots to make sharp turns to line up with the runway.{}

      Most of central D.C.{}contains prohibited airspace up to 18,000 feet, according to the FAA, so pilots are forced to follow the Potomac River in order to land.{}

      While following the river, pilots have to perform a 30 to 40-degree turn. The sharp maneuver could turn the stomachs of some, which places the airport on The Weather Channel's scariest runways list.{}

      Other scary runways include{}Nepal's Tenzing-Hillary Airport,{}Congonhas Airport in{}Sao Paulo, Brazil, and{}Barra International Airport in{}Barra, Scotland.{}
