I have a quick question for you.
The photographer of the first photo below of Malta's Intl Airport (MLA), states that this airport's main runway is the longest runway in Europe.
I found a website for Malta's Airport, however, it didn't have any diagrams or info about the airport's runway lengths, etc.
So, can someone please let me know how long the main runway (rwy 32/14), at Malta Intl Airport is ........ preferably in feet, but meters is fine too.
I find it interesting that the island of Malta would have a longer runway than any of the runways at London's Heathrow Intl (LHR), or Paris's Charles de Gaulle Intl (CDG).
Does the length of runway 32/14 have anything to do with it's use by the Concorde? How often does the Concorde fly to Malta?
