2 people are buried on a runway at a major US airport!

While runway 10 at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport in Georgia may not be a particularly difficult or scary landing, it does involve touching down on a pair of graves.

Like many airports, Savannah/Hilton Head was built on former farmland. Farmland often comes with ancient burial sites and family plots, and most airports deal with it by moving any graves they find to nearby cemeteries.

But when the Savannah airport needed to expand during World War II, it was met with resistance from descendants of the Dotson family.
