MaxFledglingFacts; “Threshold Stripes” What do they tell You?

MaxSez: Those White Stripes you Note on Approach at the End of a runway tell a story you should remember. The Stripes are routinely white in color & 13ft Long, there count tell you the width of the runway at a glance at Decision Height/Rway in Sight.
