Well, if you suspended operations while the runway was occupied then aircraft DIDN'T continue to use the runway during the launch as the launch was halted. How long did it take you to clear the runway for aircraft operations? How long did the aircraft use the runway?
Clarification is needed. Previously you said the launch "was held on the end of the main runway". Which is it? Was it on the runway or not?
But are entitled to use all of it.
That's fine, but you can't hold a launch on an active runway. The runway is either closed or all those that are participating in the launch must scramble to clear the runway of all people and equipment in the event an aircraft wishes to use it. What was the plan if an aircraft decided to spend a few hours doing touch and goes?
