There are plans to expand the south runway at Ft Lauderdale so as to
accomodate larger planes.. so- for the past two weeks a 747 has made an
appearance at FLL, parked near terminal number 2. My question is: obviously
the existing R/W accomodates this 747.. why would a longer runway be
needed.. can't believe someone would let a 747 land at an airport that
wasn't quite big enough.. what is the rule here?
