i know this can not be done now, but how about in the future?

Recommended Posts

i was just on a site that gave all kinds of technical info about airports and i noticed that KBOS mentioned that they might use different runways throughout the day, but once it gets dark, just the 15R/33L runway is in use (15R for arrivals and 33L for departures).don't tell me that aitm or afcad are able to switch runways to others when it gets dark?now that would truly be "as real as it gets".

I don't believe it. 15R and 33L are the same physical runway in opposite directions. There is no way they're going to use 15R for arrivals and 33L for departures at the same time.KBOS has a long history of combat between the airport and the local community over noise and traffic levels. It wouldn't surprise me if the "after dark" runway usage is really a noise abatement procedure.

I'm sure it is noise abatement. LAX does something very similar, so takeoffs and landings are over the ocean. Kind of scary seeing planes take off and land in opposite directions - just like FS using real weather! :)--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
