I really don't think 5 and 6 qualify. At least "island" is in the name

Default Interesting ...

I would have said zero until I read some of your lists and saw Key West and St Simons Island. But hey, what about Galveston that airport is on an island. Good flight objective. If the site maintained an island record for everyone that flies to an island and reports it ... but then someone would want a similar list for every state they landed in, etc. Never mind.
