Commercial Airports with Runway Arrestor Gear Systems

Wed Aug 09, 2017 2:44 pm

Not entirely sure if this is the correct forum, but I was wondering: what are some commercial airports that have permanent Arrestor Gear installed on at least one runway? I know KSTL and KPDX do; what others do?

According to this, "Approximately 400 airports with arresting gear cable have reported commercial airplane traffic" but it makes no mention of any specific ones.

Many of them, like CHS, are joint use.
