Circular runways are being researched to save space at airports
There’s one way to solve the problem of airport space. Make the runways circular. One man came up with the unusual idea a few years ago and has been working with a team at the Netherland Aerospace Centre to make his dream a reality. Henk Hesselink believes that by creating a 360° runway it will not only conserve space but it will be greener for the environment. And flight simulators are being used to test it.
