Departures Runway 22L – Chicago O’Hare International Airport

Departures Runway 22L – Chicago O’Hare International Airport

This is how it is pretty much all day long on this runway when the winds favor it. (And sometimes when they don’t!) ….And the airport has four other runways in continuous operation as well. 

Runway 22L is 8075ft by 150ft across (around a mile and a half long). Landings used to be standard on 4R often times with East Flow but recently it is only used for departures it seems. Landings on 22L are very rare but I am very lucky to have a few videos of it happening:

The runway is mostly used by regional jets and mainline airliners but the occasional heavy aircraft works its way in there sometimes. FedEx Md-11s are a 22L departure from time to time.
