The interesting thing about this airport is that it's a phase one and phase two airport. Phase one is the picture above and looks like something out of the 1960s, with real architectural appeal. It's what you'd like to see when you get to an airport. Today, this part of the facility is left to handle a couple of the smaller airlines like Air Canada. This is where guys want to install the new Ronald Reagan statue. It's supposed to be up within six weeks.
The phase two of the airport is about 300 feet away and looks like your typical medium sized town airport, with sixty-odd gates.
If you showed this picture to most folks around the area....they'd have to take a minute or two to think about it because most have never been to this part of the airport.
So if you ever take a notion to travel up to DC and have a couple of hours open....go over and view the airport (the older part). It's at the bottom of the "J" and all within ten minutes walking from the METRO station.
