The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport in Georgia in the USA has been named the World's Wackiest.

Fox News gave the airport the unconventional honour thanks to its pair of grave makers in the middle of the runway, marking the spot where previous landowners the Dotson's were buried. 

In second place was Courchevel Airport in France, which features an undulating runway and appeared in the James Bond movie 'Tomorrow Never Dies'. 

Gibraltar International Airport, whose runway is crossed by the main road to the mainland, took third spot, with Amsterdam Schiphol in fourth. The Dutch hub features an art gallery, a casino, a meditation centre and individual shower rooms.

Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok, with its golf course, came fifth; Agatti Airport in the middle of Indian Ocean was sixth; the aquariums at Vancouver International Airport placed it seventh; Barra's tidal runway meant it ranked eighth; New Zealand's Gisborne Airport, which is crossed by a railway track, was ninth; and Juancho E Yrausquin Airport in the Caribbean Netherlands rounded out the top ten - its runway is just 1,300ft long.ADNFCR-408-ID-801668224-ADNFCR
