Opened in February, 2002, the McNamara Terminal/Northwest World Gateway easily handles millions of passengers a year. The "water feature" centers the terminal as passengers both foreign and domestic stop to relax before moving on to their next flight.

Watching this pool at DTW is relaxing before boarding a plane for adventures abroad.

It's nice to see this photo featured on airliners.net because I live right next to DTW and have seen that fountain numerous times. Great photo and what better aircraft to be in it than the 747.

The first time I laid eyes on this picture, I thought what the heck is that! Then I thought the airport was flooded, and I thought how cool the reflection was. Right after I realized it is at my home city airport! WONDERFUL IDEAL SHOT!

This reminds me of that commemorative stamp that Boeing made of the first 747 commercial flight! Lovely picture :)
