A/C type matches, arrival time matches.

so which main runway is in use now at FLL? The only other runway barely big enough for big jets is the diagonal..

Runway 13 has been in use all day....it's 6931 feet long. Suitable enough for most of the traffic in and out of FLL.

Apparently no one has taken a picture of this bird yet on A.net, as far as my own searching could tell.

All traffic was on 13 until about 1 or 2 yesterday, I think the last time that runway was used was this summer when a Gulfstream (CO) Beech 1900 landed with gear problems on 9.

I just did a turn down to FLL the day after and we did indeed land on 13. Apparently when the plane landed he damaged the runway, as there where construction vehicles tearing up part of the runway.

Quoting Ksonderling (Reply 6):

I'm not sure what makes you say that, They were still using 13 at 5:45 when I left the airport.

***Not everyone was using 13 yesterday, several smaller twins and turboprops were able to LAHS of 31/13 on 9R. I followed a Shorts in late yesterday afternoon in my Seminole after holding for a little while south off the airport. Thanks for the pic's and extra info.

When I was on 595 at 3 I swear I saw them coming in normally, but I wasn't at the airport so I will take your timing on this one

FLL Press Release:

November 1, 2006

FLL Incident, Update #3, Wednesday November 1, 2006

As of 12 noon today here is the most accurate and recent information we have regarding the early morning incident at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Runway 9-Left

At 2:31 this morning an inbound charter plane from Mexico City landed on runway 9L, (our main runway at FLL). The aircraft was found with the landing gear not extended.

There was no prior alert to FLL regarding an incoming aircraft with any type of trouble; therefore emergency crews were not dispatched in advance.


There have been no reported injuries as a result of the incident. There were 2 crew members and 10 passengers.

The aircraft, a Hawker 700 was removed from the runway earlier this morning.

There was a significant amount of fuel spilled on runway 9L.

Specialized crews have been working to remove the spilled fuel. Other teams have been standing by and are now working on repairing a 30' by 75' section of the runway with new asphalt. We're told it takes about 90 minutes to "mill" the area and another 90 minutes to lay new asphalt. Then there is a cooling period necessary for the asphalt to harden. Weather permitting we hope to have the 9-Left runway back in full operation early this evening.

In the meantime, FLL is using runway 13/31 for air carrier operations. Because runway 13/31 is shorter than 9L, some long haul flights might be required to make a fuel stop enroute to their destination.

There have been some flight delays as a result of today's incident.

When 9-L is back on line, we will send another advisory
