Potential for Wrong Runway Landings at Tucson International (KTUS)
This notice expired on

Numerous wrong-runway landings have occurred at Tucson International Airport (KTUS), especially when runways 29 are in use.  Many pilots have mistaken runway 29R for 29L, or Taxiway Alpha for a landing surface.  Taxiway Alpha is north and parallel to Runway 11L/29R.  

Ensure correct runway lineup.  Runway 29L is the shorter runway on the south side of the airport.  Pilots are urged to thoroughly plan for their arrival at Tucson in advance.  Review the current airport diagram, in addition to the attached photos depicting runways 29 at KTUS.
