I understand runway 16 was being used as the active quite a bit today, due to strong winds. It's quite short, 6,081 feet. It has a 500 foot displaced threshold for landing due to obstructions on approach and virtually no clear zone. To anyone who knows PVD, it's a rare treat to see the big jets landing on runway 16.
