Here is a rare site; a British Airways B777 landing on 27R! As I was walking to my car after work, I looked acrossed the airfield and it was a strange site. Another day, a DC9 took off from 27L and it seemed as though it was flying right over the terminals. It was cool site. And love the roar.
I noticed on a trip to DFW in October, the main 3L/21R was remarked as 4L/22R (so I'm guessing the new runway is going to be 4R/22L?). I haven't gotten confirmation that since 3C/21C is no longer the center runway, it's now 21R/3L.
HlwydCatft, did you notice how the runway light posts come all the way to the freeway! They better secure those with some guardrails!
