BUR is about the closest thing to an aircraft carrier that I've ever seen without having been on one. You land on 8, rollout to the end, turn right, and poof!--you're at the gate. The proximity of the gates to the runway centerline really catches your attention.
New terminals, of course, won't make the runways longer, nor make the terrain/obstacles around the airport disappear (two items that would permit longer flights out of BUR
, and improve the landing minimums getting into BUR
), but new terminals would make things nicer for the passengers. Don't know that we'll ever see them...
