RUNWAY REPORTS EUROPE.
Information on RWY conditions expressed by one or more 8-figure groups appended
to the METAR.
MOTNE runway reports code AABCDDEE.
1st and 2nd figure RUNWAY DESIGNATOR|
PARALLEL RWY:s The right RWY is identified by adding 50 to the Designator, e.g
77=27R, while the left RWY only the RWY figures appears e.g 27=27L
The figure 88 instead of a RWY designator indicates that conditions reported
apply to all RWY at the Aerodrome.
The figure 99 instead of a RWY designator indicates that a previous RWY report
