The runway that this 737 is approaching is runway 34. It's the longest commercial use runway in that country at 12,675 ft. There are 2 other runways that may be seen. Runway 28/10 (8000 ft) and 25/07 (6200 ft)

You use HTML in the body of your message. You click on a pic at Airliners.net and it brings up the large version. Go to View in your menu bar (IE) and click Source. Then you find the image source, copy it and paste it into your message. Easy as that!

It should look like this, EXCEPT it will have < at the start of the line and > at the end

This is Calgary Airport in Alberta, Canada. It's a B737-200 operated by Canadian. The airplane is landing on runway 34. I've seen this picture before.

Montreal, I'm sure of that. Can't remember whether its Dorval or Mirabel. It's the quiet one used mainly for International flights. There was an article about in a few years ago in a magazine and I recognised it from the aerial photo used with the feature.

The V shaped runway pattern, curvy rapid exits from the runway and the remote stands on the main apron are what gave it away. Hope I'm right?!?!

Calgary International

Wed Jun 21, 2000 10:29 am

It's definitely Calgary International(YYC). AirNova, Koala, and sammyk are right on the money about the airport in the picture. See that old tower sitting in the lower left? This was where the old YYC terminal was before the late '70s, when the present terminal building was built near the north end of the main north-south runway. If you look really carefully, there's an east-west runway(actually, it's more like NW-SE), a smaller one, intersecting the main north-south runway. It's used by regional carriers and general aviation aircraft. Apparently it's a 737-200 on approach, operated by either Canadian or WestJet. If you look closely at the very far right side of the pic right by the centre between the windshield windows, one of the larger buildings at YYC can be seen, although I'm not sure whether that's the airport hotel or the airport office building.

I could also recognize the terrain, as I've been to Calgary a lot. To the right in the picture, the land across Deerfoot Trail (Calgary's largest freeway) from YYC starts to get hilly and Nose Hill Park can easily be seen directly to the west of YYC. A lot of new housing has gone up there in the past 7-8 years, some of which can be seen at the far left. Although YYC sits on some of the flattest land in Calgary, Calgary sits right at the edge of the Alberta Foothills leading up to the Rockies.

Yep, you guys are all right! The main terminal is blocked by the windshield pillar, the large building to the right is the cargo area. If you look at the bottom of the windshield you'll see McCall Lake Golf Course. The airport was previously known as McCall Field after a famous aviator.

Sorry, Jet Setter, I'd hate to say it, but you're wrong about which airport. If you meant the "quiet one" in Montreal, that's probably Mirabel(YMX). Mirabel's buildings are different and would've sat farther from the runways. Also, Mirabel has two large main runways, while YYC has only one, wth a smaller secondary one intersecting it. Dorval(YUL) (and YOW, as Pronto guessed incorrectly) are surrounded by more built up land than YYC. I know this is YYC, because I'm familiar with the land around it and Calgary itself to an extent. I live in Edmonton (a 3 hour drive north of Calgary), so I have been to YYC and Calgary quite a few times.
