Have You Landed On The Entire Compass?

Sun Dec 11, 2011 4:36 am

Inspired by the Have You Landed At The Alphabet? 2011 Edition (by Airstud Nov 24 2011 in Aviation Polls) thread, I thought I'd come up with another fun one!

Have you landed (landed only, no takeoffs) on the entire compass? Only the runway designations matter, not what their actual magnetic heading is. Bonus points if you can do it all without repetition!

36: AMS
1: PEK
2: BNA
3: ATH
4: ORD
5: CAI
6: SAW
7: DEN
8: HNL
9: SXM
10: CUZ
11: HAN
12: CUN
13: DFW
14: GPS
15: LIM
16: NRT
17: BGO
18: MAD
19: ARN
20: SIN
21: GYE
22: CPH
23: AKL
24: LAX
25: HKG
26: PHX
27: MEL
28: SFO
29: GTU
30: MIA
31: JFK
32: KUL
33: IAH
34: SYD
35: AUS

The only one that wasn't commercial was obviously GTU, and that's because there seems to be a strangely limited number of airports that have a 29.

Whatcha got?!

Cheers,
Cameron

I don't keep count of my runway landings but I at least got that rare 29   (in KEF)

Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

Oh I like this one...
* represents ones I've been the pilot flying or pilot in command.

1: LAS
2: OGG
3: FSD*, DTW
4: MSP, DTW
5: AKL
6: LAX, BDL
7: MKE, BJI*, PHX
8: MIA, ATL, HNL, 4V4* (Northwood, ND)
9: GFK*, PHL
10: FCM*, ORD, STT
11: EWR
12: BDE*, MSP, SAT
13: RRT*, JMS*
14: ORD
15: BWI
16: DEN
17: GFK*, DEN
18: MCO
19: TPA, MCI, IAD
20:
21: TVF
22: MSP, PVR
23: AKL
24:
25: BJI, PHX
26: GFK*, FAR*
28: FCM*
29: STL
30: D37 (Warren, MN)*, 2L1 (Larimore, ND)*
31: BJI, PKD
32: ORD
33: BDL, FSD*
34:
35: GFK*, MSP, DEN
36: FAR*, DFW

Missing a few, but good none the less for being 20 years old. Obviously not all were on a commercial flight, but that makes the list more special to me because I was the pilot flying, and for some, the pilot in command.

Quoting Stabilator (Reply 6):
29: STL

When did you land on 29? That's extremely unusual. 11/29 is almost always west departures and east arrivals only.

Quoting TUGMASTER (Reply 8):

I wasn't aware LHR had ever had 10. Learn something new every day!

As far as the "rules" go, if you have landed on that strip of concrete with both designations, then I would say yes, it counts. But I couldn't, however, say I'd landed on 10 at SXM because when I was there, it was 9. I've landed on both 9R and 10 at ORD, so theoretically, I could count it for both.
