28/10 was closed for a few nights, maybe 16 was used for departure? All I can think of.

Unconfirmed report. Due to rubber removal on Rwy 10/28 Runway 34 was the active. While 16/34 was active, allegedly an Aviajet MD-80 mistakenly made an approach for the new N2 road running about 1-2 mile parallel to Rwy 16/34, thinking it was the runway. Go around made in plenty of time.

Hi Toltol
Rubber removal occurs regularly. Such events are posted in the AICs often enough...

What did they use to take the pictures for that report, a mobile phone cam?

Low lighting nessecitates longer exposure time, ie the shutter is open for longer... with a moving aircraft (ergo a moving camera), you get blurring, that's what happens, it's normal.
