Smile ORD - Min Fuel declared after landing

Well I landed on 27R yesterday at ORD. Thats the new runway located in Wisconsin.

So much for expecting (and briefing) the shortest (still long) taxi route to the gates - I got a Grand Tour of much of the airport. ACARS showed 18 minutes from touchdown to on blocks.

So much for capacity enhancement!

Seems then ORD is taking a leaf out of the book of Schiphol. Were you have to land in Belgium!! It's so far away you can't see the main terminal on a misty dutch morning. and it has it's own control tower!!.

it is actually in a place called Hoofdorp, which ironically have a train form there to the terminal that arrives quicker than an aircraft taxying. According to Google earth it's about 4-5 miles taxy to the main terminal area!

Obviously airport planners thinking outside the box.

And the same thing will happen if the cretins in charge go ahead and build the third runway at Heathrow. 15-20 minute taxying (minimum).

I've taxied for over 20 minutes at CDG. As the stewardess said, "For those passengers travelling onwards to Nice...I think we've arrived"....

However, the JAA training centre is still in Hoofdoorp ..... Wonder if there is any chance of jumping out on that side of the field next time I have to go there?

AMS does really seem to be spreading out in all directions - Only flew in there once as crew and recall it was about 20 minutes from pushback to TO clearance with only 1 ahead at the hold. Ah, happy days!!!

You can alsways tell when your going to use the remote runway for take off, as you come taxy out on to the E9 highway and and head for Amstelveen!!!!

Wisconsin as far as I have seen form that film indeed is an excellent place to visit. Especially for us ugly awkward Brits!!!

They use that runway out at Hoofdorp because it's out of the way of prying eyes. They fly classified aircraft in and out of there. Rumour has it they've been testing a one-winged 747 from there recently.

It was actually a 2 winged 747, but the starboard wing was coated in a new invisibility paint... still casts shadows though.

Ah.

There is work still to be done.

The tests will no doubt persist for a while yet.

The quicker way to increase capacity at LHR is just to build a new taxiway- to Northolt!

So there was actually no min fuel declared after landing incident? What exactly is being discussed here? Or is this purely a 'vent your feelings about long taxiing!' thread?

Not Rumours or News!

Well, there are a hell of a lot of airfields in the world where I would consider 18 minutes from touch down to on blocks as a world land speed record.

Well not amused! A false headline to grab attention, a thread filled with inconsequentialities. In short, a waste of time......and posted in the wrong place. Someone is bored. 18 minutes to the stand? You are doing well at Heathrow to do that.

SPL is with it's 6 runways one of the busiest airports of Europe and continuous fighting against governmental rulings and environmental activists. Many reasons forced the airport authorities to construct runways far from the main terminals.

Honestly, man.

Find something worthy to get angry about. Some good may well come of it, because you clearly have a lot of time on your hands.

The humour bypass was a success. I'm happy for you.

Some aircraft have max taxi distances. 6.7 miles in my aircraft, although I am not sure if that is a limitation or recommendation.
