RE: Denver Runway Question

The slope of those runways works out to about 0.5%, or 5 feet in elevation change for every 1000 feet of runway. By comparison, runway 17R-35L (11,500' long) at <acronym title="Colorado Springs - Municipal (Peterson AFB) (COS / KCOS), USA - Colorado">COS</acronym> has a slope slightly more double th...

RE: Landing At Night

I believe some runway light designs are such that they can only be viewed from "head on", and not so much from the side. Where a taxiway intersects with the runway, the edge lights are either non-existant or they are of the "flush" design, like centerline or touch-down zone lighting, which might acc...

RE: First Officer Survivor Of Comair Flight Sues

This is just my two cents: Regardless of of whether the runway lights were on or off, there were plenty of clues to let the pilots know they were on the wrong runway (per the airport diagram): 1. The runway they took off from, Rwy 26, is only 75 feet wide vs. Rwy 22 which is 150 feet wide...that is ...
