|A camouflaged plane landing at the Beijing Capital airport. The plane seems to be taking off because|
A. If you look at the runway to the east, ~8 planes are waiting for takeoff. Therefore, that runway must be the takeoff runway, designating the other (this one) as the landing runway.
But, a counterargument:
A. This is a long runway and a small plane, so shouldn't...
|The runway is huge compared to this tiny plane presumably landing on this runway.||11/24/2006||330|
|The new landing runway will be some 2,800 meters (9.240 ft) long. The centerline separation from the existing North runway will be approx. 1,400 meters (4.620 ft). This will allow for simultaneous landing operations on these two runways, which are not possible on the existing parallel runways because they are not far enough apart. ||08/24/2006||674|
|Date: 5 January 2001 |
Type: Boeing 727-46F
Operator: Air Gemini Cargo
The cargo plane approached Dundo in favourable weather conditions. The airplane touched down just short of the runway. The right main landing gear collapsed after striking the raised lip of the runway. The Boeing 727 continued onto the runwa...
|Written off after emergency landing on 11 July 1989. She returned to ADD after landing gear didn't retract, brakes failed after touchdown and the Boeing overran the wet runway. ||08/08/2007||1,638|
|World's first runway for extraterrestrial cultures.|
The two roundabouts connecting the municipality Houten with the A27 highway and their connecting road have been transformed into a runway for extraterrestrial cultures. The one roundabout is a UFO landing platform, a lighted smooth tar plate decorated with a giant letter U. On the other roundabout a control tower, which signals ...
|A 3900ft long paved Runway on Assumption Island, a single coral island which measures 11.07 km² in area and which has a small settlement on the sheltered western side. Two large sand dunes are prominent on the south eastern coast of the island, one of them 32 m high. The concrete runway runs from between the two sand dunes on the south east to the settlement.||10/20/2005||469|
|The Boeing 747 operated on a cargo flight to Düsseldorf on behalf of Emirates. After landing on runway 23L the airplane could not be stopped on the runway. It overran the snow covered runway, hitting the localizer antenna and some poles of the approach lighting system. The nr.2 engine caught fire and sustained damage. The aircraft was withdrawn from use at Düsseldorf until being scrapped there ...||10/06/2006||695|
|The landing approach using runway 13 at Kai Tak was distinctive. To land on runway 13, an aircraft first took a descent heading northeast. The aircraft would pass over the harbour, and then the very densely populated areas on Western Kowloon. This leg of the approach was guided by an IGS (Instrument Guidance System, a modified ILS) after 1974. Upon reaching a small hill marked with a checkerboa...||08/02/2007||1,540|
|A plane landing at Keahole airport, Hawaii. I'm pretty sure this plane is landing because it has already developed the blue "ghost" effect, which comes when an object is traveling very fast. If the plane were taking off, the blue effect wouldn't be there yet, because the plane couldn't accelerate in such a short distance from the end of the runway.||10/17/2006||608|
|Juancho E. Yrausquin is the only airport on the Caribbean island of Saba, in the Netherlands Antilles. It is well known among experienced fliers for the way in which airplanes must approach or take off from the airport. The runway at Saba's airport is just 400 meters (1,312 feet) long that leaves no room for any mistake when one lands there, as at each end of the runway there is a sheer drop in...||12/11/2008||5,836|
|Garbutt aerodrome was initially established as a lightly gravelled runway with a pavement 100 feet wide to carry service aircraft. |
When the RAAF base was established at Garbutt the runway was widened to 150 feet. In November 1941, the Commonwealth Works Department requested three runways to be extended to 5,000 feet by the Main Roads Commission (MRC). The Townsville City Council...
