Takes all the fun out of it when you have to explain it...surprise_i'm_armed wrote: ↑Sun Jun 02, 2019 4:50 pmInteresting fact for non-flyboys, in order to explain that only Chuck Norris can land on runway 37:
The numbers of runways are always 1 or 2 numerals in length. Add a zero to the 1 or 2 digit runway ID, and you have the directional orientation of the runway, based on 360 degrees in a circle.
Opposite ends of a runway will always be "18" different from one another, since 18 + a zero = 180 = the opposite.
So, runway 9 would = 90 degrees = east.
While the opposite end would be runway 27 = 270 = west.
So runway 37 can't exist since there are only 360 degrees in a circle which defines direction.
