Monitoring Dublin
« on: January 16, 2015, 10:39:16 AM »
Presently monitoring Dublin on OpenATC.I'm sure I heard a controller tell an aircraft 'Clear takeoff Runway 23'.There is no Runway 23 at Dublin as far as I know.Just 10/28 or 16/34.I definitely heard '23'.Anybody clarify?

Well I was viewing it too but what I am supposed to say when I wouldn't know if Dublin airport has 3 or 23 or 33 runways? Posting some messages is one, posting meaningless fills for the sake of posting a comment is another....

Well I googled it.  You'll find the answer in the first result returned.

I kind of agree with 5566, what are we supposed to say? Yes you are right, there is no runway 23, there used to be, but now there isn't. It's converted into a "parking-lot" for biz-jets and aircraft owned by leasing companies, so either an ATC made an error, or you heard wrong

Anyway pilots must read back takeoff clearances including runway number, what did pilot read back and what a/c type was it? Maybe they allow take-offs for helicopters there, but I doubt that as the only helicopter(s) based in EIDW are SAR and they have their helipads and whatnot

Could it have been Baldonnel ?

Its quite possible,,, I supply the Liveatc feed and Baldonnel has inadvert slipped in on occasion
let your wife / girlfriend hold a section of the "wet string"
then let her hold the RG213
after this she "understands" the benefits
