That's interesting. From what I can see GLA offers 7000ft landing distance coming in over the motorway, measured from the aiming point to the runway end, and only 6500ft from the Clydebank end. That's well below the Boeing figures for a fully laden 747-8F.
Prestwick has 8300ft on runway 30 and 7500ft on runway 12, which is itself a bit tight in some conditions.
