:D Except landing eastbound would be R/W 9R, the westbound same R/W would be 27L!
 
what are you guys on about with all this 27 stuff?

good one though :lol:

Runways are based off magnetic heading. R/W 9 would be the runway taking off and landing east, or 090. That same runway, westbound, would be called Runway 27 - they wouldn't say land westbound on R/W 9 because that's R/W 27... get it??? :D
 
mkloby, think......... this joke is directed at the general public, few if any have an understanding of how runways are labeled.

If it were correct, only pilots and ATC people would get the joke.

Surely, but I was answering lanc's question though, since a couple of us commented on "westbound R/w 9" which is kinda funny in and of itself... but sorry for damping your joke anyhow! :D
