it was interesting, hard to believe DEN has already reached it's capacity


I'm not always right but that's no reason to insult me

It was a good show - lots of nice shots of various airports (DEN, IAD, LAX, LGA, AMS, CDG) and a nice history of the development of airports.

You can tell that it was made prior to 9/11... most of the stats given are from 1998 and 1999, back when air travel was booming. They mention that IAD's traffic increased 26 percent between '98 and '99.

The program ended with a bit about Seoul's new Incheon airport under construction and showed lots of computer animations. Incheon's been open for two years now, so the program showed its age a little.  Smile All in all, a great show, however.
