The main runway at Peter O. Knight is 3,580 feet long and 100 feet wide, aligned in the same direction as MacDill’s runway that is 11,421 feet long and 151 feet wide.

The nose landing gear of the cargo jet stopped about six to 10 feet from the end of the runway, said Gucwa, who took cell phone video of the landing.
.

Yep, bet the pilot said "What the hell, where is the rest of the runway" as he touched down.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
