18.61: Large Scale Image of Winnipeg Airport Today

Despite a number of location studies, the position of Winnipeg Airport has remained the same since it was first established, and the layout of runways has remained much the same since the 1960s. However, facilities at the airport have changed dramatically as indicated on this image. The terminal building now has covered walkways for passengers, eight of which can be seen 1. Four large planes 2 are loading or unloading passengers at the walkways. Two other large planes 3 and three smaller planes 4 are located in other parts of the airport. The passenger terminal is located in the centre 5; covered walkways (6 and 7) lead to a hotel 8 and the building holding the administrative offices 9. A large parking lot is located to the east 10.
