KPDX ground and tower

Hmm this is different

all the runways are inactive and still making us leave and come in on the them

Nicky, do you get the fact that it’s NOT the nearest runway, as the other side of the runway with the green symbol (Runway 28L). 28R is off camera to the south.

@C_Baccari, Nick is banned from here again until Sept 18

Just because a runway is red doesn’t mean it can’t be used. They turn red for as little as a 5 kt crosswind. I can’t speak for this controller because I don’t know what traffic he had. Playground or advanced?

I know he’s banned, but when he gets unbanned he can read my message.

The tailwind is within the limits (10 kts), so in this case there is no problem with taking off from 10R, even when it’s marked red.

@nickchan Please stop posting things which don’t make sense.
You obviously don’t know a lot about aviation.
