Here’s my home airport story!
Egypt: Borg El Arab International Airport (Alexandria)
Just by the Mediterranean! Blue seas upon approach! Oh lord, it’s amazing! Mostly Short-haul aircraft arrive & depart.
Saudi Arabia: King Abdulaziz International Airport home of Saudi Airlines! Here’s some storytime!
KSA was missing an airline, they only had private airliners using a Cirrus and Cessna 😷! TWA came in and saved the country! They gave KSA a 777 & lotta American staff!
American staff had kids, kids need school, and they ain’t goin’ to a religious Arab school! So they founded my school AISJ! My math teacher has cupboards labeled TWA property!
Back on track: OEJN is the home of Saudi’s queens! I live right by it and I see those dash 8s (as in 747-8) on approach from my bedroom window!
What’s your airport special story?
Sincerest apologies of this is in the wrong section!
