The runways are just too close together for tem to confortably land perfectly parallel. You will notice that the planes are always stagered by a few hundred/thousand feet
|Quoting Mandargb (Reply 7):
As it is this case of using 1L/R for landing is very rare and I have seen that happening only couple of times (days) in 5 years or so.
Also havent seen parallel landing on 10L/R either. (if they ever use 10 L/R) for landing at all.

I thought so. Here are photos of 777 and 747 dual landings at SFO:
|Quoting 727forever (Reply 16):|
These approaches are called ILS PRM and are only done to 28L/R. PRM stands for Precision Radar Monitored approach.
|Quoting Vikkyvik (Reply 14):|
(if I remember correctly, you need 3,400 or 4,300 foot separation, depending on the type of parallel approach).
|Quoting Kaddyuk (Reply 19):|
You need to have a half mile between the centre lines to perform Parallel Instrument Approaches. As was mentioned, they can however perform parallel Visual Approaches.
