TQ2540 : Taking off and landing, Gatwick Airport

taken 7 years ago, near to Charlwood, Surrey, Great Britain

Taking off and landing, Gatwick Airport
Taking off and landing, Gatwick Airport
Thomson Airways (branded First Choice) Airbus A321 G-OOPE taxis along taxiway J to the terminal after landing on runway 26L, and easyJet Airbus A320 G-EZTE climbs away from take-off on the same runway. There are two parallel runways here, but too close together to be used simultaneously. The short runway 26R/08L, lacking an instrument landing system, is normally used as a taxiway. It is only rarely used as a runway when the other one is under maintenance (usually in the early hours) or in emergencies.
