What is the weather like over there? Looks like the rain isn't quite making it to you guys. Its been pouring all day at MCO with very low visibility. I figure it is probably at least overcast by you.

I do like 10 ops though, but I have yet to see 10 ops when I have been out there on a good sunny day.

Thats cool though if the sun came out with just a little bit of rain. There is no way you could do any spotting at MCO right now. It has been a steady rain with heavy squalls since last night. When I was at the airport earlier today during a couple of the squalls the visibility was down to about 1000 ft if even that and the ceiling was probably no more than about 500 ft all day. I wish I could get out to TPA again when they use 10 (well they probably will in a couple weeks with MacDill Airshow, but I will be at the airshow instead)

And per Flightaware's map, BA 2167 landed on it, albeit about 45 minutes late today. Must have been a treat to see that!

I just drove by TPA at appx 21:00 and they are back to landing on the normal 36L, errr, 1L.

Yeah, that's the 3rd or 4th time I've seen that.

This was the first time I can recall seeing all ops on the side runway. The wind was reall whipping up there. Take the same ho-hum aircraft, and put them in a runway configuration that normally isnt used ... Its a whole new ballgame.

I saw a few of these, but the 1st was more pronounced. A WN 737 made a Kai Tak style landing. I guess he lined up on 1L, then sidestepped onto 10.

BA, to my dissapointment, tookoff on 1L, ....I saw one WN on 1R, but that's it.

I'm outside my crib now, and I still am seeing approaches to 10.

Oh, and FX DC10 landed on 10 as well.

Anybody can email me if they want to see video.

That would have been cool to see. Too bad a United 747 didnt come in for Pemco.

Yeah that time we were watching 10 ops a couple years back - it was just all arrivals and smaller aircraft (biz jets, Beech 1900s and props) departing. All jet departures were taking off on what was then 18R.

I would love to see all ops though on it - I am sure there was quite a back up of planes waiting to take off while all the arrivals were happening - that way you get everything from there - from C172s to BA 777

Should continue tomorrow, though you guys will probably get more rain than you did today.

BA probably can't take off on 10 due to weight and the length of 10. Isn't 10 only about 7,000 ft long, probably too short for an Atlantic bound 777.

As mentioned in previous posts, in my many years of living in the TB area, I have never seen a runway 10 (runway 9) arrival. I wonder how those residents living in "Mini-Venice just due-west of TPA, & off the C.C. Causeway fared.

I'm sure there were noise complaints as people at those places aren't used to seeing planes. I've only seen it once before too as I was discussing with 727Lover back in 2009, when Hurricane Ida was out in the Gulf giving Tampa area East winds for 2 days. I was staying out in Dunedin (north of Clearwater) when my girl lived out there and noticed some TPA bound planes flying over. They weren't that low, maybe 4,000 ft or so but much lower than they usually are as sometimes TPA bound planes fly over at around 8,000 ft or so on the downwind on their way to land on 1L.

She was at work, so I decided to head out to TPA to spot - of course I ran into 727Lover there at the Economy Garage, which was perfect for viewing the arrivals. They weren't flying right down the CC Causeway, they were off to the left as you head towards TPA, but yeah they would pass over that little Venice area north of the CC Causeway. Unfortunately it was cloudy that day but a lot of my pictures did come out.

That day as I mentioned, nothing larger than a Gulfstream V departed on what was then 9, while everything arrived on 9- all commercial jets departed on what was then 18R - saw a near miss that day too as a US A320 was arriving on 9 and an Air Tran 717 was departing 18R, the US plane did a go around.

When the larger jets depart - do they end up departing over Downtown Tampa or do they make their turns much sooner?

It's raining here now, light but steady. Hopefully the winds pick up like yesterday, if so I'm headed there around 16:30.

Yeah the last UA 747 I seen there was when I went there to see the Iron Maiden 757 come in back in April, not sure if any have been back since. Seems like its been a lot of World MD-11s I been seeing since about May.

It made for a very interesting approach I thought.

I was on DL4916 yesterday and I looked out the window and we were flying very low over Caladesi Island. I'm thinking, what's going on? Are we landing at PIE instead??? (the approach was a turn over the Gulf, going straight from west to east over Clearwater Beach)
Very bouncy approach. Two ladies behind me holding on for dear life, thinking this is their last flight.
After we passed PIE it dawned on me we are going for 10. First time for me! Nice and different views.

I was wondering if BA's 777 could take off from this one? It was parked at the gate when we landed.

Looking at the approaches from FlightAware, it looks most planes approaching from the north & south lined up for runway 10 right at the west terminus of the C.C. Causeway, where it turns to Gulf-to-Bay Blvd.

The DL 4916 really went out into the Gulf and set itself up for a long straight-in approach.

The BA flight appeared to hug the Gulf coastline before making a dog leg turn to C.C. Causeway.

I couldn't find any "Kai-Tak" style circle-to-land approaches.

I wonder how these approaches to runway 10 impact traffic at PIE.

Addendum:

Looks like a B6 flight had a TOGA from Runway 10 and wound up landing Runway 1L.

In 2009, I saw them flying over south Dunedin area when I was staying out near Keene and Sunset Point - basically between where I was staying and the Clearwater Airpark. They seemed to be lining up for 10 by flying directly over downtown Safety Harbor that day in perhaps a 11 degree heading before straightening up and flying parallel to CC Causeway, although the approach briefly crosses the causeway just west of the Little Venice area

Do did it go right over the main beach area of Clearwater?

how far south did that one go, or did it do a Kai Tak type approach?

Quoting phatfarmlines (Reply 13):

I've seen some of them landing on 1L. I've seen a few SWA 737s look as if they are flying right over the Howard Frankland before turning to land. A COEX B1900 did when I was there last week - went between Frankland, and Cypress Point Park where it looked like it was going to land 1L but actually landed 1R.

Then sometimes on approach to 1L they go way out too. I have been at Passe a Grille - south of St. Pete Beach and seen various planes and a Fed Ex DC-10 actually fly pretty low over it.

Usually minimal. If its that windy that TPA goes to Rwy 10 its usually too windy for the little guys at PIE. Allegiant wont take runway 9 at PIE so 35R or maybe rwy 4 works for the arrivals. Its neat to watch the traffic lining up over the Causeway plus PIE gets increased traffic count from all the point outs for the decent into TPA. Its win win.

Well that was actually Phatfarmlines question, not mine, however it was a good question. Two years ago when TPA was getting 10 (or 9 back then) arrivals with Hurricane Ida off shore, they had just switched for the most part to the 18s when I left and it was starting to get dark - BA did land on 18R at that point (first plane of the day to do so as I was hoping to see it on 9). I was heading back and I saw a UPS A300 landing on 17 at PIE (but again by this time TPA had switched over to the 18s). Departures out of PIE that day were probably using 17 at least for Allegiant and the larger aircraft, since TPA was using 18R for departures while 9 was being used for landing. Small planes probably used 9 at PIE for all ops. Allegiant landings might have been using 4 for arrivals or since there are very few PIE ops a day they might have been able to fit an Allegiant in on 17 between TPA arrivals on 10, with Allegiant at a lower altitude. Or if visibility wasn't too bad, bring them in parallel with TPA approaches then have them turn to short final to 17 once they reached the bay.

How does PIE get increased traffic count from TPA 10 arrivals? Less GA is going up at PIE due to the strong winds and I thought for an operation to count as an airport's traffic count the plane actually has to touch the runway at that airport, not just be in its airspace.

It was around 6;45-7;15pm Trust me, it happened. Also saw a 737 abort. Looked like it was attempting to land on 1L.

I was hearing all this when I was in the air around SRQ. We were getting lots of x-wind practice because they had 04/22 closed here, which obviously would have been ideal.

I flew into TPA on Saturday on DL 2372 from ATL on a 752. I thought for sure we were going to land on Runway 10 when looking at TPA ops on FlightAware. We ended up landing on 1L, though most flights were using 10 throughout the day. It was really windy coming in over the bay....the 757 shook around like crazy with the strong east winds.

Back in early 2008, I was on a DL 763 from ATL-TPA in January that landed on Runway 28. I was thinking we were headed for 18R, but we kept going almost all the way to Plant City before hooking around to the west and landing on 28. There were really strong winds out of the NW that day.

That is something I would like to see - large aircraft doing ops on 28. I know when 1R/19L was closed in spring 2010 for repairs, the B1900s and GA aircraft were using 28, but wouldn't 28 approaches pretty much take you over Downtown?

Not sure where a good spotting location would be for 28 arrivals though - departure shots would be great with the planes coming at you with Bucs stadium in the background I would imagine on 28.

I remember getting a good view of downtown on the way in! I had a window seat on that side of the plane. I recall being just to the north of it on approach. I was surprised at how far east we went before turning back to the west...was almost thinking the flight was being diverted to MCO or something... It was probably the largest plane to land on 28 that day...unless the BA flight from LGW was operating that day and operations were still taking place on 28 when it was due in. At that point in time DL was down to only one 763 flight per day on ATL-TPA-ATL and it was just before they quit regular 763 service to/from ATL
