World runways Google Earth KMLs

If you like flying (like we do), and using the Google Earth flight simulator (again, like we do), then it can be quite frustrating being able to find the airport, and then land on the runway in the right direction. Here we present a number of KML files for most countries in the world which map out the runways so they can be seen from miles away.

These files are completely open source so feel free to use them as you wish. Modify them, add to them, pass them off as your own if you really want to although that wouldn't quite be in the spirit of the whole thing now would it. If you do change something that everyone else might find useful, if you let us know me may be able to incorporate your changes.

Thanks and appreciations
Huge thanks for help with these files go to:
The guys at OurAirports.com for making the data freely available (http://www.ourairports.com/data if you want it)
Ed Williams over at The Aviation Formulary for making the necessary calculations available and easy to understand.

The files will list all of the airports and runways that we know about, and for each runway, there is a start, end and mid-point marker so that you can see from a distance in which direction the runway travels. It's wise to only turn on the items that you want to see during the simulator as there are thousands and thousands of markers otherwise.

If you have problems
If the start point of a runway is wrong, or the code or name or runway ID are wrong, please let the guys at OurAirports.com know about it as they maintain the database. Something like a runway spearing off in the wrong direction, or into the side of the local supermarket, well, that's us, so let us know and we'll take a look at it for you.
