Congonhas Airport

From the series “The Most Dangerous Runways in the World”
Congonhas Airport, located in the center of São Paulo, is probably the airport with the most slippery runways in the world. The bad drainage system in this case is the main danger for the experienced pilots. At present, the airport has two runways, the length of which is 1 435 and 1 940 meters. The general public is familiar with the large airport of São Paulo due to a series of terrible aircraft crashes.

One of the first aircraft crashes near the airport happened in 1941. The plane, which was approaching the Congonha airport, could not overcome the mountain massif and crashed. The number of victims was 13 people. Three years later, the fog surrounding the city became the cause of the accident, which cost 16 lives.

Most aircraft crashes of the past 70 years have happened at night. … Read all

Rodovia da Morte

From the series “Most Dangerous and Lethal Roads”
The President Dutra Highway (BR-116) is one of the most dangerous and mortal roads in Brazil. To be more exact it is its section Curitiba-Sao Paolo that makes it so dangerous. BR-116 is the largest highway in the country, linking Porto Alegre and Rio de Janeiro and passing through a number of major cities as well as Curitiba and Sao Paulo. The area between these major cities is called Rodovia da Morte (Highway of Death), due to its many accidents.

The sad statistics no longer surprises the locals. They've already got accustomed to the daily accidents on the road. This section is really difficult so road fatalities are distressingly common.

A part of the route runs along the cliffs and the drivers have to pass through the numerous tunnels and narrow areas that lack any fences. … Read all
