I was viewing the layout of the 2 major airports in Moscow: Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo. What I know is that airport designers study the patterns of wind direction to determine the best orientation of runways.

DME has 2 parallel runways, and the same applies to SVO... but in perpendicular positions, and the airports are like 70 km away. Would the wind direction change in such a small diameter?


A300, A319, A320, A321, A332, A333, A343, A346, A388, B734, B738, B772, B773, F70
