So, my friend bets me I can't take-off and land the 747 from SVFM (Base Miranda, a.k.a. La Carlota) in Caracas, Venezuela...
They say an image is worth a thousand words...

Yeap... and I forgot to apply reverse thrust. (The 747 is so high I wasn't sure I had landed until very late... so I just slammed the brakes -- ended on the grass, a few feet off the runway).
However, in real life, there's no way you could park a 747 there, and definitely not on that runway (there are some mountains there).
