the airport history blog
Welcome to "The Blue Concourse", the AirportHistory.org blog! Many airport and aviation aficionados will recognize this name from the 1970 movie "Airport", the movie which ignited my fascination for airports!
"Airport" was set at a fictional Chicago airport called "Lincoln International Airport" but was actually shot at Minneapolis St. Paul Airport in 1969. Until the year 2000, the terminal's concourses at MSP were labeled according to colors rather than letters. Considering our house color blue, we thought it might be a suitable name!
In this blog, we will post small articles, factoids and more covering topics such as: never built projects or concepts; current airport projects and fascinating airport statistics.
The blog will also be a bit more lighthearted and personal than our airport histories. Stay tuned!
With a title inspired by the setting of the iconic 70s film "Airport", this blog is the ultimate destination for airport history fans.
Some of the content we'll feature:
✈ Unique airport design
✈ Never built projects
✈ Fascinating statistics
✈ Future airport concepts
✈ And more!
