Runway 1 is appx. 7,000 ft long. The gates are alot closer to the south -closer to where the plane touched down. There are only 6 exits to 1/19. Three are within the first 2,000 feet of each end. So there are no exits until you get towards the end. Long roll to save time.

Barry, Many airlines now choose to not use reverse thrust. Simply put, it costs money and is sometimes unnecessary. In this case, our terminal was at the end of the runway....so they had no need to turn off sooner...thus no reverse.

I like it because of the sound. Speaking of that, how come they did not use reversers?

I wouldnt say it's "proper procedure" to use reverse thrust, although it is very common. In this case, a long runway, gate close to the end of the runway, rising fuel costs would be reason for not using reverse.

What I find so interesting is that he did not use the reverse thrusters. Maybe the runway was long enough for him to do that although I thought is was proper procedure to use them no matter what. Either way good job in filming this pal.
