Airport draw distance

How far out do you see the airport runways ? I would think with 20 mile visibility you should be able to see it at least 10 miles out. I can’t really make out the runway until about 7 miles out. I mean I can kinda see something out there that looks like an airport but the runway, about 7 miles. I don’t remember it being that close before SU5 but I may be wrong. This is on a 15 inch laptop

The LOD distance has been reduced with SU5…now the landscape popup only when you are close

are there any real life airline pilots on here that can tell us in real life how far out they can see the runway visually in VFR conditions?
