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. Runway 29L is off-set approximately 2,500 feet northwest of the runway 29R threshold. In addition, runway 29L is narrower than runway 29R. Also be aware that Taxiway A is parallel to runway 29R and may be mistaken for a runway. 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.
