What was that crew thinking using 16-34. That's a 3967' non-precision runway with no touchdown observation lighting. And they did this at night. I've never seen a large jet use that runway for landing even in daylight in 20+ years of flying out of there and hanging out on the observation deck. They always use the 6001' 3-21.

Agree on the runway selection, not a good choice. But, 20:43Z is not night.
