Thank you soo much @MJP_27 !

Great photos! The runways in use at PHNL were quite unique, but understandable as it was very busy, I was spotting and I saw 4 planes overrun the 22s at Honolulu.

Thank you soo much @Pilot_Felix, I was soo lucky to have the 26L Reef Arrival at Honolulu, and RIP to those who overshoot the runway.


@Andy even though that’s the real procedure irl, most pilots in if don’t know how to do that visual approach and it’s super easy to overshoot and have to go around, IFATC just permits straight ins to 26L (which gives me supreme cringe) and hopes none of the aircraft hit the mountains.

This is why even when winds are permitting 26s, if PHNL has to deal with extreme traffic, IFATC must still use 8s. Here is the one and only procedure IFATC can use at PHNL that will efficiently cope with extreme traffic, such as certain times today where it was super busy.

8L and 4R arrivals
8R for departures (multiple aircraft can quickly cross 8L between arrivals without causing a hazard, aircraft don’t have to wait for arriving aircraft or crossing aircraft, so it’s unlikely that a line line will accumulate, but if a long line does form, then there is plenty of space for it because of the two long taxiways feeding it)
4R/4L for light ops


Oh I see, are you from PHNL?

Awesome shots! Some of the angles are really cool and interesting!

No I’m not from Hawaii, I’m actually from Montana, I have just studied PHNL for a long time and what does and doesn’t work there. It’s a very unique airport for sure.

Thank you soo much @MADCAT, and welcome to the Forum!


Funnily enough, I went to HNL in March 2018, and the entire evening I arrived, traffic was doing that approach. I have some shots of it but they’re all terrible
