Chicago Midway Airport New Flight Pattern


#1

for the past two years ive notived a completly new flight landing patterns when planes are set to land or arrive from the northeast corner of airport, and i must say its a really cool approach to runway 4R northeast corner, planes now approach runway from the beautiful lakefront from the to make a more safer and straighter approach then the old big buttonhook turn they did all the time

Approaches to 4R would be going Northeast (coming from the Southwest).

I believe you are talking about the approach to 22L.

Every time I’ve flown into MDW we have landed on 31C, so nothing exciting there.
