Who Knew?

Did you know that airplanes typically take off and land into the wind, so in certain weather conditions, land-facing runways are required so that aircraft can safely operate? Additionally, very large and heavy, long-distance aircraft such as those going to the Far East usually need the longest available runway for departure. At SFO this is Runway 28 Right, which does not face San Francisco Bay.
