WHY IS THIS SO UNIQUE

Picture yourself running down the brand new runway, with some of your closest friends. The runway you're on is completely closed, only touched by planes. Your feet are almost the first contact with public the pavement will experience. All of a sudden a commercial 747 lands on one of the open runways right next to you with a deafening roar. The adrenaline pumping through your body is now at its peak, possibly the best rush you'll ever experience. When and where else will you do this again?
