I have had the luck to fly QANTS's A380 before they became Covid redundant! What a beast! But, like the dinosaur, they are now headed rapidly for extinction. Sad. Airport design will no longer have to contend with its requirements. London (Docklands) airport is probably the future.  Since the massive reduction in passenger numbers, the need for high capacity aeroplanes will shrink and, with it, the need for any increase in airport capacities. Don't believe me? Check out all those Flight Review videos of guys flying as almost the sole passenger on any flight.

The pandemic has certainly affected the need for a Third Runway, as it has for the need for the HS2. Hopefully, movement restrictions will continue to reduce the need for interconnecting infrastructures like additional Motorways.

Two things: first, headwinds DO NOT reduce the power requirements for an airplane to take off, they only enable a shorter ground roll. Second:who came up with the circular runway idea? Airplanes take off and land in a STRAIGHT LINE. They can only turn on the ground at speeds WAY BELOW minimum flight speeds.

Absolutely wrong concept of “Balanced Runway Length”, which is the the runway required to takeoff when using a V1 that provides Takeoff Distance (TOD) equal to Accelerate-Stop Distance (ASD). Deceleration distance is much shorter than acceleration distance.

Funny error on why Phoenix/Sky Harbor has to shut down flights at high temperatures. It’s not because the runways are too short, it’s because the performance charts only go to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. (You can’t legally operate a commercial aircraft outside the limitations of your performance charts.) That in turn, was because 1950’s to 1970’s asphalt lost stability above 120 degrees. Now, nearly all commercial ramps are concrete. Some discussion has taken place to change top temperatures on performance charts to 125, but I don’t think either Boeing or Airbus has done so.

London LHR seriously needs to be relocated somewhere outside London City!!! estimated cost of building a new international airport in London, £12.0 Bn - £16.0 Bn approx!!! an average airport should have atleast 3 runways of varying length between 9,000 ft & 13,600 ft (subject to sufficient budget & available real estate) with 2 of the 3 runways having ILS!!!

Qamdo is only 4500m long!!!! Balanced field isn’t 2x the distance to V1, you actually do accelerate stop distance and accelerate go distance performance flights!!! Stopping can include stopways which isn’t apart of the runway length!!! Not 1% for every 1C above normal temp. On some aircraft 20C will result in double the runway needed SO MANY MISTAKES!!!!

Here's a hint... European traffic circle. As a plane passes, passengers throw their luggage into the hold and are pulled into the plane by flight attendants using one of those ropes Marines use to rappel from helicopters. Everything happens on the move, so that slow and useless passengers are left behind, and the planes never stop moving. Typical landing/deplaning/refueling/ and takeoff should take no more than about 4 minutes. If you are too slow, fat, or uncoordinated to climb the rope, oh well. Life is trying to tell you something.

Hmmm... How about this logic: Accommodation of existing airplane types costs society huge expenditures in resources and time. Safety is greatly reduced and compromised by fixed runways that cannot pivot for changing winds. Can you not see that current designs held over from the twentieth century are not sustainable going forward. Helicopters Tube airplanes Flying wing Blended wing These obsolete designs put huge pressure on society in infrastructure costs and compromised safety. When will logical human beings let go of 21rst century designs that have cost thousands of human lives, behind? It is not a lack of technology that holds mankind stuck in a vicious cycle of trial and error. Where human life cannot be redeemed or reclaimed. But is sacrificed on the altar of trial and error and misguided design. There are far superior designs available. It is not for lack of technology that they are not used. This question must be answered sooner than later. Enjoyed your video presentation!
