  1. LOL! I would have to agree with one exception – the airport in Bozeman, MT. Nice place!

  2. Bull. I’ve seen some beautiful airports. PDX in Portland, Oregon is quite enjoyable. I had a connection at the airport in Brussels that was so pleasant, I wished I could have spent another couple of hours there. And the old, no longer used Templehof airport in Berlin was magnificent; that’s why Spielberg used it as location in Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade. I was fortunate enough to land there once and still treasure the memory. As is usually the case, Adams doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

    • If you liked Brussels (which has a neat late 1950s terminal building) try Amsterdam Schipol airport. It’s the most pleasant airport in Europe IMO.

      I agree that Berlin Tempelhof is a marvelous building. Too bad it’s no longer in use.

    • I read they’re planning to turn Tempelhof into a huge park.
