What does this code, "R08L" mean?
Dear Dr. Hassan,
Very interesting question! Learned some new things about the numbering on runways in Airports.
R08L- Runway 80 degrees Left
80 degrees (compass bearing as per 360 degrees in terms of numbers 1 to 36, so 08 is 80 degrees)
Left (left hand runway of 2 parallel runways)
