The name "Skiathos" is derived from "skia" (greek for "shadow") and is named after the shadows of the countless trees covering the island of Skiathos. Skiathos v1.5 by 29Palms Scenery Design is now taking you to the Northern Sporades of Greece in Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D.
The airport of the island is considered to be the "Greek St. Maarten" because of its spectacular approach. The runway reaches the surrounding sea on both its ends and is in total only 1628m long. Bigger aircrafts like a Boeing 757-200 are forced to perform low approaches. Although there are plenty of signs warning about the danger of the jetblasts of starting airplanes, some people still prefer to remain there for the "buzz" of the jet engines blast.
