Airport Named After The Longest-dead Person

Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:35 am

I'm guessing it's Skopje Alexander the Great Airport (SKP). I mean, it's hard to top someone who died in 323 BC

There is a King David lounge at Tel Aviv!

After that, Mary Airport in Turkmenistan comes in 300 years after SKP!

I think the winner might be Moses Point airport (MOS) in Alaska.

Adam Airport! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Airport (I cheated though!)
Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

If they ever open a Lucy Airport at the Olduvai Gorge, the record will never be broken ...
