Here is some information from PMDG 747-400 LCF PDF:"Horizontal Stabilizers are shipped from Grottaglie, Italy (LIBG) to Charleston, SC(KCHS) via a refuelling stop at Prestwick, Scotland (EGPK) where final assemblyis also performed at Charleston before shipping onwards to Paine Field.""Note: Due to Grottaglie’s 5,610ft runway length, a fuel stop at Prestwick isnecessary."Ok, I understand that Dreamlifter is too heavy to take off if it takes that fuel which is needed to get from LIBG to EGPK but for example Navigraph's LIGB chart says 10,489ft/3200m for runway length. Also some other LIBG airport information says 10,489ft (http://www.acukwik.c....aspx?ICAO=LIBG). Flight simulator's own data says 5,610ft so which one is right FSX or Navigraph?

It may have at some point been lengthened between the writing and now, but looking at the sat image, I don't see any evidence of it. Then again, I don't have a sat image measuring tool available here at work (Google Earth as an example). Judging by the aiming points, it doesn't seem like it's 10,000+ feet, but that's just me eyeballing it with no other references.
