Different runways serve different purposes. While the gigantic runways of major cities are created to ensure the safe and efficient travel of domestic passengers from all over the world, some runways in hidden parts of the globe serve a more ulterior purpose. During the Vietnam War, a top-secret Central Intelligence Agency operation called Air America tasked private pilots to fly small two-prop engine Cessnas to fly all over Vietnam to deliver all sorts of items, from weapons to food to spy equipment. These aircraft landed in makeshift runways carved out of the jungle by the locals, and were basically just stretches of dirt, flattened out and given a few kerosene torches as landing lights.

Purposeful and indispensable

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States decided to retaliate by launching a counter-attack, a bombing raid in the heart of the city of Tokyo itself. 30 American bombers led by Colonel James Harold Dolittle, were tasked to execute these bombing raids, launching off the decks of aircraft carriers that would come as close as possible to the coast of Japan. But these large army planes were never designed to take off from the limited-spaced runways of aircraft carriers. So Dolittle had to train his pilots to go past the limitations of their aircraft and do exactly this.
