Perhaps a local retiree with plenty of time to spare could get up there with a tape measure.

 i was on my way when I realised I only had a 4 metre tape ;)

I think the runway in Fuerteventura is 2400.7789576 metres long in summer, it contracts slightly during the winter to 2399.789086 metres long.

Watching the sunrise over the runway is reckoned to be one of the eighth wonders of the world but if you see a plane flying past the sun with the runway in the foreground at the exact moment it rises is truly breathtaking.

Flight Information / Re: Jet2 from Stansted

They provide a pull down cup holder on the seat in front of you.  You could hang your jacket on that.

Gatta is correct; the runway here on Fuerte is 2400 metres long; NOT 3400.

According to airport map info it is actually 3406 metres , the old runway which they now use as a taxiway is 2105 metres.

Without wanting to get into full anorack mode, I think Calculator may be right to correct my posting..... several sources, including a pilot info site give the length as 2400 metres, which I used, but others do give 3400 metres. I see a brief re Lanzarote gives the length there as 2400 metres 'the shortest in the Canary islands', suggesting, too, that Fuerte is longer! Should be simple to establish, shouldn't it, but that's the Internet for you!

Thank you Snowdrop & Archer, for the advice.
I contacted the refurb man, and told him I have contacted my solicitor, and I will not take responsibility, for the damaged apartment below me.
As he said, he had turned the water off.
He has asked for the complex agent details, which I have given him, and I have also given him, the lady below me details, so he can check the damage.
I'll be talking to my solicitor tomorrow.
I paid loads, to get that apartment refurbished, and he has left me with nothing but problems, which I think is his responsibility, not mine.
As a business person, I would never do that to one of my clients.
What I don't understand, is why he never got a plumber in himself, to sort it out, as he had been paid loads.
I have decided that I will fly over, and I have arranged to have a key holder, and I will arrange for a plumber to meet me.
I got the refurb man, from the Fuerteventura Facebook, handyman site.
And he still advertises, on there.
Thank you both again, for the advice, I really appreciate it.
