Longest Runway At Your Airport?

Sun Sep 09, 2001 3:15 am

Due to my facintation with runway lengths and the size of aircraft landing on them I was wondering what the longest runway at your home airport is.

For all those who live near airports with runways less then 6000' I would like to know what was the largest aircraft you saw was.

Mine :
longest rwy 6000', largest aircraft:757-200.

CYKA,

Ah but those 757s are mighty powerful craft though  Smile(just like the 727s they sorta were designed to replace)

But yes 6000 is pretty compact, even for those.
I don't know what the heck it's like being around smaller 'n quieter airports a lot (apart from just smaller and quieter, of course). YUL's had runways to handle the biggest craft around, basically since it's been around (I think 24R started off at around 9000' or so, and it wasn't a big deal at all, bringing it up to current 11000'. Don't even know when they did that either, I guess maybe ten or fifteen years or so now.)

Hello,

Not that I think this is of any interest to anyone but anyway:

Kerry (EIKY/KIR): 2000 metres (It is the only runway in operation) which I believe is pretty long for an airport that gets 1 B737-200 a day plus a few ATRs. (ah things used to be different not so long ago when Aer Lingus flew here)

I think I'm right in saying that 27R at LHR, my local, is the longest civilian runway in the UK. I was under the impression the runway at Fairford might be longer?

IAH: 12,001 x 150 ft. - the biggest a/c are 747-400's, or maybe the An-124.

HOU: 7,602 x 150 ft. - I think that the biggest are probably MD-80's, I don't think that HOU gets 727's or 757's and we definately don't get anything bigger than that.

EFD: 9,001 x 150 ft. - as far as airlines, just the CO ATR42's are the biggest. Otherwise, there are a bunch of NASA planes and military planes coming through daily.

I meant to add, about YUL, the folks watching in the small spotting room upstairs, for their friends or relatives' planes leave and take off on 24R where most of the big internationals leave, generally the 744s and 767/777s lift off from what seems to be about the 7000' -8000' foot part along the runway. While the 340s take sorta another several hundred feet more than that.

At KSMF (Sacramento Intl.) The smallest is 8600, and although 747's dont normally serve there, they have landed there before when San Francisco gets closed down for fog.

Denver International - it's got 6 (I believe) 12000 foot runways with another 16000 foot one to be completed by the end of the year or so.

Here at BUF the longest is rwy 5-23 8,102 x 150. Right now I think the biggest aircraft are occassional charters (L1011 or A300) other than that it's your normal array of narrow body favorites. Back in the day...early1970's to early 1980's, we had regularly scheduled DC-10 and L1011 service at BUF.

FYI- the crosswind rwy will be extended from 5,376 ft to around 7,200' in two years.

Hi:

The only runway in Santiago Chile has 3800 meters and the largest aircraft served in SCL is a Boeing 747-400 but sometimes the chileans can see the big Antonov An-124.

The longest runway at YOW is Rwy 14/32, which is 3048 metres or 10,000 feet in length. 747s show up once in a while (usually come when a state visitor arrives). An124s are rare. A330s are the largest frequent user at the moment (twice weekly May-Oct). 762s/763s are in multiple times a day. YOW can handle any sized aircraft without any problems.

The longest runway at PIT is 11,500 feet. The 2 US Airways A330-300's from London and Frankfurt are the biggest airplanes landing daily. These airplanes on these routes have a choice of three runways at PIT for both takeoffs and landings.
