Jun 29th 2009 6:39PM Kent, I was reading with interest your second answer because years ago I remembered pilots using the Levittown water tank as a reference and I wondered if they still use it. To my surprise you used the SJU approach and answered my question! I live very close to that water tank.
Many years ago, a 757 (I think) got confused and landed on runway 9 at the Ribas Dominicci airport which handles only small planes (5,000 ft runway vs. 10,000 in SJU). They had to unload the airplane for take off because the runway was really short. Someone said it was his first time.
Anyway, thanks for you answers and blog.
