I read in 'Aero international' that the two parallel runways 25L/07R and
25R/07L at the Frankurt airport (FRA) can't be used at the same time since they
are only seperated by 518 meters.
- What's the minimum distance where two parallel runways can be used    at the
same time ?
- Are there other restrictions for these type of runways ?
- Are the rules the same in Europe and the US ?

To all experts out there, I would appreciate any inputs
