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.

We just might have to put you on double secret probation for that one.treadlightly wrote:Some questions trespass the cosmic unknown.
Philosophers will always listen with dread fascination for the elusive sound of a majestic redwood, alone and unobserved in the forest, falling.
Some questions will always transcend uncertainty.
If Chuck Norris is alone in the woods, unobserved, and breaks wind, he is without doubt silent but deadly.
Wow, that was tasteless. Apologies, all.
