Off to Leipzig
The runways used to be 06 and 24 when the runway headings were 236 degrees relative to Magnetic North (236 rounded up to 240 divided by 10) and the other end was 56 degrees. Magnetic north drifts slowly and the runways are now 231 degrees and 51 degrees relative to Mag North which are now rounded to 230 and 50, hence runways are now 23 and 05.
Some people still say 06 and 24 if they don't know it's changed.
Excellent went and had a nice view next to the runway. It was freezing and I did go sliding on my arse and got covered in shit. Well worth it mind as the beast took off and then turned and headed back over the airport at about 7000ft, great sight and sound.
