Beware Frankfurt airport EDDF


Recommended Posts

Microsoft has messed this one up. You may be directed to runway 26L for take-off, which doesn't appear to exist. The sim shows only two parallel runways, 25L and 25R.


26L begins about halfway down 25L.


In reality, there is no 26L at Frankfurt.

No, Tom til 2009 "26L" was used for landing simultaneously with 25R. Because the runways had not enough distance they shifted the touch down to the southwest.


You can see the markings and PAPIs on Google Earth history.


With the new runway 25R it was gone. The old 25R became 25C.
