okay, on the ends of every runway there r numbers... and if you are about to land like 2 miles out (away from the wanted runway) they are more likely to assign the one you are closes to but if they dont say streight in then that is not the runway unless u r not aliened with the runway.. dont worry you will get it. it took me 6 months to get it but if you want more info email me at xman506@hotmail.com (xman 506 @ hotmail [dot] com)

The numbers on the runway is the heading on the compass, ie. 18 would be 180 degrees on the compass, runbway 22 would be 220 degrees, the reciprical onthose runways would be 36 or 360 degrees and 4 or 04 would be 40 degrees, the runway is always the heading.
