Taoyuan Airport second runway

Moderator: hannes

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

cool.
Iconic design


Yes. And no.

These architecture company videos are nonsense.

All major airports are a pain. And I've been through a lot. They are designed to cattlherd people into designated areas.

A good ol' fashioned airport was a cowshed, where the announcer spoke through a loudspeaker announcing your flight was about to go (this was 10 years ago in China).

Fuck these big, over-air conditioned hangers we sit in. And the planes where we get treated like shit. And overcharged.

Bollocks.

Runway 05L/23R has re-opened today.

http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan-busi ... rports.htm

A look at FlightRadar24 shows both runways being used.

About time - we did 2 orbits near Hsinchu returning from Hong Kong last week.
