This is a timelapse of a session at SBEG (Manaus). The airport has an interesting layout, with a single runway and overspaced runway exits.

I was acting as initial approach while Georgios was acting as final. Spacing was a crucial factor, with a minimum of 6NM spacing required to fit in a departure being two successive arrivals. Local controllers Kedz, Sunghoon, Stef and Oliver did an amazing job managing arrivals while tackling the increasing departure queue.
