Just curious


Recommended Posts

Ive occasionally seen in movies an airport some where in USA where the runway goes over a major freeway.


In other words the planes land on a bridge that goes over a road


Can anyone tell me where it is

There are a quite a few around the country.


The new 5th runway at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport crosses I285 and allows up to 18 lanes of traffic to pass underneath.




There are lots of very wide freeways in Atlanta.


Hartsfield is impressive to watch. At any one time you can see 2 planes landing at once in parallel runways, 2 more 60 seconds behind them, then 4 more behind them - all on final.
