Here’s some truly frightening footage of airplanes landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK. “Landing” actually might not be the best term for these though because the airplanes look more like they’re spinning sideways and tilting out of control and praying that their wheels touch the ground instead of bouncing off…
Here’s a time lapse and tilt shift video of a day in Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan. It’s a wonderful look into the puzzle of how a big time airport works but is also totally beautiful to see the lights of airplanes land and fly out of the runway. It’s like man made moving stars skimming across the sky. Just beautiful.
The Chicago Department of Aviation's Airport Noise Management System recently revealed that noise complaints near the international airport are at an all time high. An official report cites that 63 percent of the 39,000 complaints in January came from just six addresses.
The logistics involved in maintaining the constant flow of machinery in and around an airport is a thing of modern beauty. Add in a breathtaking mountain backdrop lined with a golden sun and Salt Lake City International Airport is basically an highly choreographed work of art.
Check out Beijing's new airport terminal by Zaha Hadid: 700,000 square meters (173 acres!) in total, with an 80,000-square-meter ground transportation centre. It kind of looks like the mother of New Mexico's spaceport, from where Virgin Galactic operates:
England's Bath Bus Company began shuttling customers from the city of Bath to Bristol Airport 19 miles away on Thursday, using a 40-seat bus that is powered by human waste and food scraps. The bus is the first of its kind in the U.K. and can run up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) on a tank.
With full cooperation of the airport authority, control tower and communication with the pilots, this drone video gets an unprecedented perspective of air and ground operations at a large international airport.
You needn't sacrifice basic preparedness — for the outdoors, for fixing stuff or for first aid — just because you're flying somewhere carry-on only. These are the tools you can take on planes, how to pack them and how to use them.
The nation's third-largest airport, LAX, is in the midst of a renovation project called "LAneXt," that will last the next few years. The last major renovation for the airport happened before the Summer Olympics 30 years ago, and officials say this multi-billion dollar project will be painful.
The default emotions in airports are pretty much all negative. You're either late, exhausted, frustrated, hungry, regretting Panda Express, remembering all the crucial things that were in the checked bag you'll never see again, or composing a complaint letter/Tweet in your head. But airports are also beautiful.
Shotguns are not allowed through airport security. But what does that matter if you can build one from items purchased in an airport gift shop? The break-action shotgun pictured above was made from Red Bull cans, a hair dryer, batteries and a can of Axe body spray – and it can blast a handful of pocket change through…

On a recent trip to the airport rental counter I marveled at the ability of the Avis/Budget representative to make me feel like a criminal, a moron, and an irresponsible lout gambling with my life all in the space of about eight minutes. Welcome to modern car rental.
The video of two car guys exploring an empty Dallas airport exploded on the web after we posted it here yesterday, with many wondering if the video was real. Jalopnik spoke with the film's two creators last night to get the inside story of how — and why — they did it.
These police officers at the Cork Airport in Ireland have it all wrong. First they let 37-year-old Edmond Stapleton steal their SUV at knife-point, and then they let him chase them around the airport. Quick, someone cue up the Benny Hill Music.
A suicide bombing at Russia's Domodedovo Airport in Moscow's claimed the lives of 35 people, with 130 more injured. This graphic video from inside the international terminal where the blast occurred shows smoke, fire, and piles of wounded people.
A man accidentally brought his loaded .40 caliber gun onto an airplane. He didn't know he had it. Neither did the TSA, who completely missed it during its scan and allowed that plane to fly. Apparently, this happens a lot.
SNL wasted no time spoofing the TSA—and its controversial pat-downs—tonight when it aired a retro spoof ad that likened an unwanted physical experience at the airport to a purchased night with a hot female escort. The video, inside.
