Devil Auckland Airport

There was only one runway at AKL the last time I was there so unless one has appeared in the last few months I guess there is still only one r

My understanding:

05R/23L 11,926'=3,635m Concrete
- the "southern" runway
05L/23R 10,197'=3,108m Asphalt
- main taxiway, standby runway
?/? 1,200-2,150m
- proposed or under-development "northern" runway

Runway 05L/23R is normally used as a taxiway, but it does have full runway markings painted on for use as a runway when 05R/23L is closed. There are large illuminated "X" markings displayed prominently at each end when it's not in use as an actual runway.

Korean - wrong runway in Auckland

The Korean captain said, just before take-off:

"Ahh..! That is a long lunway in Auckland!"

And so the rumor starts.

Wrong runway or wrong WAY?
Nothing would surprise me as in their culture the FO would gladly sit with crossed fingers than cross his Skipper- it's happened many times before- 747 vs JAL 747 over Tokyo for example.

Not just KAL!

31 October 1979; Western Airlines DC10-10; Mexico City, Mexico: The crew inadvertently landed on a closed runway parallel to the active runway. The aircraft struck a large vehicle and crashed. 63 of the 77 passengers and 9 of the 11 crew were killed.

(It can happen)

Also happened to SIA (but not at AKL). That was their first major incident I believe.
