RCAF Stn Fort Macleod had 3 runways in a triangle configuration, i.e. three runways forming an equilateral triangle. All of these runways were abandoned but can be seen clearly in aerial photography. Many wartime RCAF training stations had a triangle configuration in order to allow for a wide range of wind directions. The modern runway 06/24 is not one of the original runways. It was an entirely new runway constructed approximately parallel to one of the existing runways but cutting across the other two near their apex.
