Runway T?

Hi!

Why do some runways in the north have a ‘T’ on the runway number? I just think it is strange. It may be because they aren’t edited, but why a ‘T?’

Most runway numbers are for their Magnetic heading, T = True heading. So in the case of your picture it would be 120° True Heading as opposed to Magnetic heading. .

Because CYUX is so close to the magnetic North Pole, airports near the poles have XXT which stands for True next to them
