|ATS routes into HNL|
|Quoting Kalakaua (Reply 4):|
That is interesting... What's the airspace around Dillingham Airfield like? I believed the skydiving and all that other fun stuff would have restricted the airspace. I also believe that's where the ANG F-15s practices. I always wanted to swing around Kaena Point.
|Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 6):|
Funny - I've had exactly the OPPOSITE experience as most people! Both times I've flown into HNL (April, 2000, UA DC-10, and August, 2005, UA 777), the approaches were identical - we flew west over the north shore of O'ahu, then a big sweeping left turn over the windward side of the island, and then another left turn to line up for 8R, the reef runway.
Are you sure you landed on the reef runway though? It's very very rare for any aircraft to land there (08R that is, not 26L).

Interesting. I've never been on this different routing to HNL. Are you sure you landed on the reef runway though? It's very very rare for any aircraft to land there (08R that is, not 26L).
|Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 9):|
I know it was one of the 8's...it could have been 8L...I do remember taxiing for AGES!!
|Quoting S12PPL (Reply 12):|
Are you sure about that? Back in '96 when we flew PDX-HNL on HA, I'm pretty sure we landed on 8R. The flight FA was describing the scenery as we made our approach, and mentioned we would be landing on that runway...And like PanAm747 mentioned, we taxi'd for ages after we landed. Also, on our outbound to Kona later that day, we took off from 8R as well, and landed on 8R I'm pretty sure on our return to HNL for our flight back to the mainland.
