There are no crosswinds in a runway with literally any direction of take off possible. If the winds blow from 265, there would be ways to calculate according to your planes performance, to start the take off run from somewhere in the circle so you are at Vr at the point where your nose is pointing at roughly 265. Landing would be the same thing.
You couldn't have 2 or 3 airplanes taking off and landing at the same time if winds are over, say, 5 or 10 kts though, one of them would be landing with a tail wind and that's not ideal
That would mean that the runway would have to be really long though, longer than a traditional one. I'm also wondering how many Gs can a plane pull in a corner, normal take off speed for an airliner is what 120? 130? (mph)
