Denver Intl, Too big to be special?

Denver Intl (and most huge airports) are very big and have many flights. I feel that these airports are not special. Who cares if a 767 is on approach? That is normal, so it is not special. At all these big airports, there are so many things that are normal that nothing is special, but at smaller airports (such as GSO), if a 767 is on approach, it is something very special. At these airports, there are so many things that are not normal that many things are special, every flight and every plane is special.

I think that smaller airports are more interesting, because they seem to have more of a personality and they are more things that are unique about them. What do you guys think about this?

Yeah, I agree, Coolangatta, Hamilton Island and Darwin are all sort of like that. When a plane lands, it's a special event. But at airports like LAX, San Francisco and PDX no one cares if a plane big plane comes in. Nothing's special, it's just another plane.

I forgot to mention that I lived near an airport for 13+ years and never once saw a plane land there. I guess actually seeing a plane moving (I saw some stationary planes) was a very special event!

that maybe true but look at o'hare
you can see many different kinds of planes and many different airlines so that you get a variety not just one AA 767 every other month

Your right Captain747, O'Hare is an exception (note that I said most), Honolulu is also. ORD even has military aircraft.

I agree with you for the most part, but look at Kai Tak. Every aircraft movement was watched by enthusiasts. Imagine being able ot see all those 747s and other widebodies from so many airlines at one airport.
