You've all done a great job with your questions so I feel obligated to throw in a couple of trivia questions of my own. I'm certainly not an equipment guru like the other posters, so here's a couple off the beaten track (almost literally).

1, Name the only two airports in Europe where the runway crosses a main road. Level crossing barriers are used to stop traffic during takeoffs and landings. I flew through both of these in the 70s. They still have scheduled passenger service. One is very far north, the other almost in Africa (that may be too much of a hint). Name the airlines and equipment used.

2. As a corollary to jlemon's earlier questions about the North American airport parallel to the beach, name an airport (anywhere in the world) where scheduled (on a seasonal basis) passenger flights use an actual beach as the runway (not at high tide!). Name the airline and equipment used.
