With the current weather observations pointing to easterly wind tomorrow what runway would be in use for arrivals and departures??? 27's or 09's???

Also does anyone know what system they will be using, which side before 3pm.

Cheers all,

Chris

P.S. Anyone know of any unusual traffic in tomorrow???

Hey Chris.

I would think the 27's tomorrow. I think it will be

27R- morning is Dept until 3pm then Arrivals
27L- morning is arrivals until 3pm then depts

I am 80% sure of that, you will see when you arrive anyway  Big grin

thanks

"27L- morning is arrivals until 3pm then depts"

What gives with the runway switch? I was there this weekend. On Friday, I didn't get out 'til around 5:30 p.m., and it was 100% 27L arrivals. Very late in the evening (around 10 or so) a few arrivals began to trickle onto 27R. The next morning at 6:00 a.m., flights began streaming onto 27R one after another. I went over to the big spotting location at the traffic circle near the road crossing, and was surprised to see a lot of people packing up to leave around 2:30 p.m. I soon found out why - the arrivals switched onto 27L for the remainder of the day. Late that night, again around 10 p.m., the arrivals switched onto 9L, and when I left this morning around 7:30 a.m. that's where they stayed.

Why the arrival/departure switch in mid-afternoon?

I think its to do with noise. both approaches have housing estate after housing estate under them  Big grin, there was a topic about this a while back, But I am pretty sure it is because of noise pollution.

Saturday they were landing on 27R until 3pm then switched to 27L, I was there on that day also  Smile

John - it's to give the NIMBYs some relief. Why on earth they bought their houses under a flight path is beyond me, but then that's the way NIMBYs live I suppose. If they whinged less, it'd be quieter anyway!  Wink/being sarcastic
