"Regards US airports, DFW
is about 17,000 acres, DIA is a little more than that. But remember that MCO
is also in that ballpark."
is actually over 33,000 acres...not really same ballpark.
"...especially Denver considering how much land they have to use, the airport layout looks terrible from Alex's picture, and 8 runways?"
only has 5 (soon 6). May be mistaken for DFW
Groom Lake is definitely a candidate, though I believe the longest runway at Edwards is longer (7+ miles).
has a lot of land to expand if they need it. When they originally obtained the land, they obtained all the land surrounding the airport as well. The actual facilities don't take up all 33,000 acres (though a substantial portion of it!).
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
