I´ve been thinking about the runway at my home airport, Mannheim/Rhein-Neckar MHG/EDFM. The runway is only 1066 metres long, the biggest equipment used to far was a Dash 8-300, operated by Cirrus Airlines on behalf of Team Lufthansa.
Can it become any bigger? Or is this 50 seater the maximum? Any airliner jets - Avros perhaps, they´re designated STOL a/c? Is this the shortest runway Lufthansa and their franchise partners use?
