Re: Chicago Aviation Thread - 2020

Hello all. Its been a while since I surfaced and looked at this thread again. Thanks for the pictures with the updates to 9C/27C. I took that and updated an idea I had to create (or move) a 4L/22R near the oil tanks. I posted something similar a couple of years ago, but I can provide an updated pict...

Re: ORD Expansion deal close

It would obviously be unreasonably expensive, but there is more than enough room to move 22R to the Northwest a little bit. It would have been smart decades ago, but the net gain in space probably wouldn't be worth the cost. I posted an idea about this at this thread http://www.airliners.net/forum/...

Re: Chicago aviation news - 2018

I've been following GYY off and on to see how things are going. GYY is well situated with 3 major interstates and a large runway. Unfortunately, Midway and O'Hare have gobbled up the bulk of commercial aviation and cargo aviation, leaving crumbs for Gary/Chicago. They just recently hired a new airpo...

Re: Chicago aviation news - 2018

There are indeed other transportation forums which do discuss the idea of an express service train to O'Hare. The idea might seem good from a prestige point of view, but it seems to be highly uneconomic. You would have to buy lots of rolling stock, find a yard, get buy-in from CTA, Metra, and/or cla...

Re: Chicago aviation news - 2018

For the airport plan above, the space between the new remote concourse and the new taxiway seems tight. If they were to give terminal 1 an added remote concourse, it would probably push further west, and have more apron space. Ideally if something like that we’re to happen it would be an all wide b...

Re: Chicago aviation news - 2018

I just found out that I could join this site for free. I thought you had to pay a fee to join the forum. I posted the following message on another transportation discussion site, but this site is the best suited for this discussion. Over time, I look at ways to reconfigure O'Hare to add additional g...
