    Hi !

    That is a GE ERROR. Probably a faulty radar altitude measurement.

    Even the sea-level is rising like the runway :-)

    It's funny anyway

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.

    Yup. definately a software error.

    here's a pic of the actual runway.

    as you can see, it is not running up a huge slope, and shouldn't require anymore skill than any other runway of smilar size.
