"27L- morning is arrivals until 3pm then depts"
What gives with the runway switch? I was there this weekend. On Friday, I didn't get out 'til around 5:30 p.m., and it was 100% 27L arrivals. Very late in the evening (around 10 or so) a few arrivals began to trickle onto 27R. The next morning at 6:00 a.m., flights began streaming onto 27R one after another. I went over to the big spotting location at the traffic circle near the road crossing, and was surprised to see a lot of people packing up to leave around 2:30 p.m. I soon found out why - the arrivals switched onto 27L for the remainder of the day. Late that night, again around 10 p.m., the arrivals switched onto 9L
, and when I left this morning around 7:30 a.m. that's where they stayed.
Why the arrival/departure switch in mid-afternoon?
