On Friday, July 25th 2014 between 11:00-14:00Z VATIL Division will be inaugurating LLBG’s newly renovated runway 21 in VATSIM network!
In the real world, runway 21 has been in use for more than 25 years as a taxiway for traffic departing rwy 26. As a part of the airport’s major upgrade program which began in 2010 runway 21 was lengthened, windened and was equipped with ILS infrastructure in order to meet the high demands in traffic volume, and to allow two runways to be operated simultaneously: One for departures, the other for arrivals.
