Ok, am I the only one who finds the detail on gate, runway, and taxiway use and layout fascinating?

How old are the maps? I noticed DEN's 6th runway is still under construction:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=den&t=k&hl=en
And I noticed my mistake, if you just change the airport code in the search bar, it doesn't update the url (at least in Firefox).

ATL has no sign of a 5th runway:

Not until you mentioned it. Good catch.

But so is the supreme court house!

The white house is a cut out. There is no detail except its well known outline.

I'm obsessed by this tool. Help me!

Odd that they got rid of the White House.
BTV is in beautiful detail by the way, you acn actually see a US Airways ERJ-145 pushing from the gate, a jetBlue A320 on Runway 33 ready to go.

Here's CLE:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=cle&ll...86&spn=0.023646,0.035491&t=k&hl=en

This one can't be more than 2 or so years old. It shows stage one of 6L/24R open, but the rest of it under construction. It even shows what must be one of those Saudi oil baron 747SPs parked by the IX Jet Center!

Neat! Mapquest once had something similar, but for CLE the map was Years old (pre concourse D) and was in black and white. This one is newer and in color.
