Sunset on Easter Island.

The runway extends from the east coast of the island.... the west coast. At one point this was an emergency landing strip for the space shuttle, but it is no longer used for that purpose.

More toppled mo'ai. There is controversy regarding restoring and re-erecting more mo'ai. Some want to restore all sites, primarily for tourism, while others believe they should stay as is. The toppling of the statues is as important a part of the history of the island as their carving.
