Hi to all,
I was hoping someone may be able to help me with a query pertaining to Sydney's international airport. Why is it that runway 7-25 is rarely used for 747's and larger planes in general? I know its significantly shorter than 16R-34L, and that crosswinds would sometimes make the east west runway unusable, but it seems that it is hardly ever used for these larger planes. I remember a time when i was younger when all the big planes would land over my house (under the 7 apporach), but these days Im lucky if its even open for regional props. Why?
Thanks in Advance,
