Circular Runways

So cool. Not sure what the practical concerns of this are, but it’s a really fun idea to consider. Less noise, fewer crosswind concerns, efficient use of space. What’s not to love?

Looks a little odd, and I wonder if it’s more of a pipe dream than a practical solution, but I’d love to see this implemented somewhere. I can’t imagine taking off or landing on a banked surface though.
