The World's Great Airports On Google Earth

John Travolta is famous, or infamous depending upon your point of view, for living in a home (Jumbolair at Greystone Airport in Ocala, Florida show above) where he parks the airplanes he owns on site.

My buddy Tony, who publishes The Lives an Times..., pointed out that it's not just celebrities who are able to pull an airplane up to the door of their home.

In Wadsworth, Ohio, in fact, people live in a housing development called Skypark where they do just that...

While Skypark is likely to be one of the most unique airports you'll run across it's not a great airport.

These are the world's great airports on Google Earth...

No Kennedy Airport in New York?

Frank, I had Kennedy Airport on my list. Unfortunately, the Google Earth image of the airport isn't an especially good one so it was a no go.

The Atlanta airport is so huge, it takes 30 minutes to taxi from the gate to the runway it seems.

I thought this was an amazing collection of pictures. I love aerial photography. Being from the Windy City I was glad to see O'Hare. It really is a monster of an airport. Hoo-ha!

PS-Your likely least favorite blogger here-Matt from the National Affairs Desk--and I just wanted to add how much I enjoyed the pict of AREA 51, as I was under the impression that those insidious bastards had beefed up security making the ability to get current photos of America's biggest secret / decoy impossible. Very cool.
