I saw a DC-9 takeoff at KFTY (atlanta charlie brown field) today. It took every bit of the 5000 ft runway. One of the ramp workers said the Navy flies them in here occasionally. 5000 feet just seems really short to me! He said Bob Dole's 727 flew into KFTY a couple of times as well.
So, does anyone have the actual minimums in standard atmospheric conditions for these two planes?
I'd also be interested in others... DC-10, L-1011, 747..
