What Was The Last Airport You Were In?

Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:37 pm

Hi!

Thought I'd ask a quick question/poll. What was the last airport you were in? Mine today was Bristol here in the West Country in the UK where I dragged my Mum to go watch planes and have a look at the terminal/drink a coffee. It is a very cool airport with some very interesting features including:

Runway approach lights on one runway built on very high stilts because the terrain drops off sharply away from the runway.

A great view from a spotting place on the far side of the runway from the terminal.

A nice small terminal which looks like a miniature version of London Stansted but with lots of trees and grass outside like a small garden.

Approach lights on stilts and sheep!



View from the spotting place (although when we were there today we saw only 1 plane land and nothing on the taxi ramp):



Outside the terminal:



Inside the terminal:

It's definitely no Hong Kong or Soeul but it's still an airport so I like it!

Anyway if you feel like writing what airport you were last in and maybe posting a few pics it would be great!

Many thanks.

P.

Last week I was in MIA. I was also not flying, though I did get to go into secured areas. I was taking a tour of CBP facilities in MIA. They have a great staff there! Dogs and Humans 

Next time in about two weeks I will be in MIA flying out to LAX, taking DL instead of the usual AA. It will be my first time in the South Terminal.

Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), specifically in the world class McNamara Terminal. Easily my favorite airport in North America.

Wouldn't the "last airport you were in" always be your home airport? Last airport I was in was JFK... and unless I'm actually on a trip at the time, that would always be the last airport I was in.

Before that, while I was on the trip I was last on, the last airport I was in was PDX.

Quoting Ps76 (Thread starter):

I love how the old CO advert is still there with the SkyTeam logo. Do they still fly EWR-BRS?

I was out at SZG a few days ago to change buses and will get to use the actual airport in a few days for SZG-FRA-IAD-OKC-IAH-FRA-SZG.

Last time I was at an airport to do something aviation related was last week in Akureyri when shuttling my friend over for his flight back home to Reykjavik. I drove home the next day.

Last airport I landed on was also Akureyri aboard Air Iceland's newest aircraft, Dash 8-200 TF-JMG, operating flight NY118 from Reykjavik.

As I practice football right under the short final approach at Reykjavik's rwy 13 / just after takeoff path of rwy 31 I am sorta at the airport 5x a week.

cheers, Sveinn

Unless you're reading this post on a current business trip or a vacation away from home. But most likely, it's going to be.

JFK for me, I just flew back from PWM on B6 almost two weeks ago after being away for 3 weeks in the wilderness. Going back to JFK this Friday for my very first A380 flight

No, my hometown airport is NWI, Norwich, which I was at last the month before. I arrived back into LHR and drove back home from there.

It's not, that is an old photo. The adverts were removed when they ceased service several years ago.

Since I won't count ORD, as I'm there five days a week, the last airport I was in was LGA about two months ago.

Not in the case where I started this post. That's why I asked the question like that.
