Earlier this month, celebrity skateboarders and skateboard crews from across the country rolled into the old terminal facilities – and even onto the tarmac – at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. They were there for Red Bull’s second Terminal Takeover.
Here is a short video of pro skateboarder Jake Wooten showing off his skills – and the airport terminal transformation – from last year’s event. And below, a link to a story we prepared for The Points Guy site.
Celebrate Museum Month – at the airport
Many airports around the country have official museums and museum programs. Stuck at the Airport will highlight as many as we can. But Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport gave us a head start.
Monday was National Tell a Joke Day and a few airports around the country shared some funny bits via Twitter. If we missed yours, please let us know and we’ll add it in.
We also spotted this colorful tweet from Pittsburgh International Airport, a fun Monday verse from Tampa International Airport, and a quick art tour from the SFO Museum at San Francisco International Airport.
And take a look at this great agricultural exhibit at Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) in California. The exhibit tells the story of the area’s agricultural heritage with photos, informational panels, and exhibit cases. As a nice bonus, the airport is offering free parking validation to those who want to just stop by and see the exhibit.
Germany’s Berlin Tegel “Otto Lilienthal” Airport (TXL) Tegal Airport officially closed in November 2020 when operations moved over to Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER).
The buildings and grounds of Tegel Airport are being turned into an industrial and research park called the Urban Tech Republic. But last week the former airport grounds played host to a special event on the runway.
As part of the giant picnic event, 1,018 dinner tables were laid out so that, when viewed from the air, they spelled out the words “Berlin loves you” – with a large bonus heart.
Berlin’s mayor said the event was designed to send out the message that the city is open for business, meetings, and events after the pandemic. The Visit Berlin tourism agency said the event was an invitation to the world to visit the city again.
