It seems off-topic and destructive, but why not just wait ten more
years, the private Learjets need to land on a beautiful turquoise
water with no land (but lots of plastic garbage) upon it instead)
by then.
In fact that was my yesterdays first thinking: ah!  i did not know
this is still inhabitable!
And it is good that the elite takes so many efforts, and cares.

  (In case this is of interest, i was not in holiday at all, but
  i met our local deer in the industrial forest we have here; he
  is still accompanied with his long time girl friend, and both
  are alive and well, even though winter is very hard!  (Do not
  believe anything you read regarding animal relationships in
  school books!  And photos are liars.))
