Runway Infomation


#1

For the arrivals and departures, is there any information that tells you which runway the aircraft used?
If not, is there some way to figure it out based on what type of aircraft it is?


#2

Runway usage is based on the winds. An aircraft tries to land and take off as much as possible into the wind. Sometimes that’s not possible due to runway configuration (e.g. the only runway is aligned north-south and the wind is coming from the northeast or even east).

There’s some people on here who can give you more detailed data such as using the METAR to guess at the runway(s) in use. They can also tell you about crosswinds and why they are not good.
