No, just that cargo planes from the likes of Cathay Pacific 744Fs could then take-off with a full cargo load even on the hottest days in Texas.
|Quoting DeltaFFinDFW (Reply 3):|
It's not like they can't do it now. We already have three runways that are 13,000 ft. Adding 17C-35C just makes it an even numbe
|Quoting DAL767400ER (Reply 4):|
Yes, but 17C-35C will be extended to 13,401 ft. That's probably around 5-7 degrees Fahrenheit more during which the fully-loaded 744F can take off .
|Quoting BHMNONREV (Reply 5):|
If that extra bit of pavement is so critical for takeoff, why are they not doing it on the inboard runways, instead of one that is rarely used for departures??
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 6):|
Considering DFW's altitude (relatively low) do those 744F's need the 13,000 as it is?? Even DEN isn't too much longer.
