Is This A Runway?

Look at this picture, Is that a runway? If it is then that would sure suck doing crosswind landings!

No, it's not a runway, you can see the yellow centerline running down it designating it as a taxiway.  Big thumbs up

Hi,

It's quite clearly a taxiway, with the way the lines are marked.

You can see the runway in the background, but hey, if that little thing were a runway, I wouldn't be too keen to fly in with a 747, let along anything else.

Cheers,

Justin

Macau International (MFM).

It says so at the bottom of the photo, as with the other related information.

Cheers,

This must be taken from the bar at the top of the new airport hotel. I've not been for a few years now. Will have to go back, knowing the traffic in Macau I'll spend most of my time in the bar anyway !!!!
