With the strong winds from the WNW, is DTW using 27L and 27R today?
safe


If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

They must be. FAA OIS is showing only an acceptance rate of 30 per hour. Last time I looked winds were 250 @ 25G31 which could still use 22R but probably reaching a maximum of the crosswind component of most aircraft. Is 27R still closed?

This is turning out to be like what happened a few weeks ago. They were delayed by over 2 hours during the rush b/c of only having 27L. Plus 27L has an alternate missed approach procedure which just adds to the problems.

They were at 1pm as I was just across Middlebelt from 11am to 1pm. Saw departures from 22 left

Why don't they open 27R is these extreme crosswind situations?

In the past they'd use 27L & 27R for arrivals, and 22R for arrivals.

That was before they had Mac.......

I have always wondered why they keep up the ILS and actually had the procedure revised for 27R if they are not going to use it ever again. I personally have not seen anyone use it other then taxi for at least the past 7 or so years.

I've landed on 27R since they opened the Mac, but the last time I landed there was in March 2002, only about 2-3 weeks after it opened.

Probably the same time I saw it - I was in the employee lot spotting after work there watching everyone use the 27s, must have been 40-50 mph west winds that day about 3 weeks after Mac opened

excuse my ignorance, but what (or who) is Mac, and how does it prevent the use of 27R?  Confused

The NW Worldgateway / MacNamera terminal, we often refer to it as the "Mac," named after a corrupt local politician.

The reason that the terminal could render 27R to be closed is due to the proximity to the runway. Honestly I have no idea if that has anything to do with it. 27R is a crosswind runway and it intersects 3 of the 4 parallel runways at DTW.
