I bet it is Harare, Zimbabwe's Harare Int'l airport with runway 5/23 being 15509 feet long. This being a commercial airport I believe and not military. Also isnt there a runway in United Arab Emiarates that is real long 15,000-16,000 ft I believe.
The runway is 16 076 feet long! Do note take too much note of all the disclaimers. The author of the site is clearly just covering himself! I have just copied it over into the forum and the whole layout has re-arranged itself and the columns have fallen away, but you can get the picture; alternatively, visit the site.
