5. At about the time the announcement was made, another albeit smaller inbound scheduled aircraft operated by SAS landed indicating that the runway was operational and that the crosswind was, at least at that time, not too great for this smaller aircraft.
Oh hello Woby_Tide - I might have guessed it wouldn't be long before you stuck your oar in:-)
Are you a commercial pilot perchance?
Had I been tuned to 119.27 I am pretty sure what kind of information I would have gleaned and I dont think it would have prevented a landing unless the aircraft was very heavy (which I doubt) AND the runway had a significant depth of snow on it.
However, I did see the enormous queues for my flight caused by the previous nights cancellation and although Aarhus is quite a long runway, I would guess that a takeoff with full load might have been close to limits if the runway was not completely clear of all snow.
There’s a trick to extend them
