strip

strip means a rectangular portion of the landing area of the airport especially prepared for the take-off and landing of aircraft in a particular direction and being

  • (a) 1,200 feet in width, including the runway, in the case of the runway designated as 08-26, and

  • (b) 1,000 feet in width, including the runways, in the case of the runways designated as 02-20 and 13-31; (bande)
