Ok, first of all, if I am annoying anyone on this, just tell me, and I'll stop. Here is goes...
Very possible rumor:
I have been hearing Evergreen is converting their 747s into fire bombers. I thought it was ludicrous, because I never thought a 747 could be used for fire bombing, but I also heard that they are already doing construction on the 747s already. Which means BOI
could possibly see a couple 747s parked for fire bombing during the summer, and possibly the whole year.
Alaska just got clearence to build a new Concourse A with the new terminal in BOI
which will be a mirror image of Concourse B on the other side of the Food Court. I hear Alaska and Horizon just bought a ton of gates, AS
will re-open the BOI
domicile, and both QX
will expand throughout Boise, again. I also hear that the Horizon CRJs and Alaska aircraft will be parked at jetways, while Big Sky, and Horizon Q400s will use the passenger walkways situated on the floor below the Food Court(Concourse C).
I hope all rumors will come true and AS
, and QX
will expand in BOI
, again, as I already said, and Evergreen will bring in 747s. I took a picture of the map of the complete expansion of the terminal when every thing is done, but I don't know how to post it because it isn't on the web. The BOI
old terminal is now demolished and it looks like an earthquake just hit. Here are some of the things BOI
will be getting...
A new expanded part of the project is now being built as an expansion of the main terminal that is already opened.
A new runway for military aircraft use.
Around 10 new gates plus a couple more parking spaces
The whole thing will add another concourse making the Boise terminal a three concourse terminal instead of just two concourses.
I am also hearing rumors that a new cargo space project will start soon, but I doubt that will happen since BOI
has enough spaces already to my understanding.
The security corridor will include state-of-the-art technology...hopefully no body searches...yeah right
A food court with McDonald's, Maui Tacos(Where else can you get them other then BOI
?), cafes, and gift shops.
Once again, if I annoy anyone by stating rumors, and such and such, please tell me to stop. For some reason I
bragging about BOI
, hence the name.
