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?
