What did Denver do with Stapleton once Denver International started? I know Fly15 is from Denver any information from anyone would be helpful?

Thanks in advance

Well... I don't get much info about it from the news, but here's what I know. The City of Denver is currently taking bids for the land from many developing agencies. Looks like its going to be a little bit of everything, including shopping malls, apartments, housing divisions, parks with swingsets, etc. Last time I was there (a year ago), all the runways appeared to be torn up and only a few buildings were standing. Some aircraft were still there though.

When I was there in March it was a National Weather Service Office, the aircraft there were owned and opperated by them. The airport is a sad site to see.

I believe that UA's pilot training center (largest in the world) is there, too.

Last I heard, they turned it into a giant post office/mail processing center. I remember that because a few years back one of the many disgruntled postal workers in this fair country opened fire there. It was all over the national news.


Create your own luck.

Most if not all of the terminal building have been demolished,even the airport spent millions to renovate them a couple years prior to moving. The control will continue to stand,what they are going to do with it is anybody's guess.
