Name The Airport!

Mon Sep 19, 2005 5:56 am

Hi folks, I'm back with more.

This time we'll just go with big, international airports around the world that are quite important. I learned from the past few times that when they get too small usually only a few people have any clue where these places are... so I figured that the big airports would be an interesting round. It'll be easier, but it'll be tougher in the sense that more people will figure it out quickly.

On that note -- this is a warm up. What airport was this?

Yes, it's Kai Tak  Smile

Now that I've gotten your attention, hopefully..

Please respond with the name of the airport and the airport code please. Otherwise it's hard to stop guesses, and it's better since many of these places have multiple airports.

Round 1

No, that was in response to the first picture, he just put the name of the place in the pic as the airport name -- i.e. he doesn't know :p

Round 1 is still open guys. It really shouldn't be too hard. Think big!

I was joking about the first pic, the one with Kai Tak. It appears to me that Chiu-lung Wan is the name of the bay.

Um, top 10 airport in the world by traffic (I think any measure, not 100% sure). Is that good enough?
