Is the runway flat?

I’ve look up some spotting or crosswind landing but the runway looks a bit off to me…

I’m pretty sure they are not flat as I always see this but I could be wrong

Yes, but have you got a link to this video? It doesn’t look like DUS.

Broadly yes runways are not alway flat as a pancake, they can undulate quite a bit.

Aha, yes it looks like that photo, I think it is EGBB.

Sorry, I meant BHX

Interesting…

Here it is, @ATK

The link became DUS
sorry…
Search the title on the DUS to YouTube

Well not all the runways are 100% flat, maybe because of the terrain where the airport is located.

It may be distortion from the camera.

Not all runways are flat. It’s probably more rare to find a runway that is perfectly flat than not. I’ve taken off on a runway (in real life) that I flew into that was like taking off from a ski jump ramp.
