The way they are rebuilding the runway in Frankfurt is incredible, see the article.

Thanks a lot; I found that article very interesting, especially how it answered my doubts about the asphalt's strength and drying time. Found this picture of the progress as of late March.

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Your not kidding.....

"but its only 50ft..."

Well that's 1,500 feet and all of it is ready to use the next day..

I would love to be a pilot that flyes in and out of there. My a/c would work the new runway in and as time passes the runway gets newer and longer. Kinda like a chia pet...

How many pilots out there know that they're rolling over several bombs when they are during takeoff roll? Big grin
