|A short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) plane departs from
a city airport. These planes need less than 150 m (500 ft)
to take off and land. They are useful for landing on small
rural runways or short commuter runways. Another
special airplane, the VTOL, takes off and lands vertically
and is useful for landing on small military ships.
