For example, in ATL on the 26s, 26R is used for landings and 26L for takeoffs.
So what happens when a plane landing on 26R has to abort the landing after they've passed the piano keys, with a plane taking off on 26L at the same time? Because now you've got two planes climbing at the far end of parallel runways with less than a thousand feet of separation. I imagine that if the plane on 26L is early in its takeoff roll, it can pretty easily abort but if it's at rotation, then what?
