    I was interested to see the layout at Dallas/Fort Worth in 1973.
    Presently we are remodelling Winnipeg Airport which was known as Stevenson Field when I arrived in 1956.
    The buildings and control tower were rebuilt around 1967/8 and renamed Winnipeg International Airport. At that time there were direct flights to London Heathrow and Gatwick was the alternate field for London. The flight time was about 6-1/2 hours.
    Today after expanding to bursting point Winnipeg Airport has been re-named and our city has become a hub for companies like FedEx and others in that line of business. We can still fly all over the world from Winnipeg but now the airport is named after James A. Richardson.
    The layout of the apron and bays will also change. I wonder how much change there has been to Dallas/Fort Worth. When I visited Minneapolis recently I found there were now two Terminals although both were controlled by one tower.
    It would be interesting to see an update of Dallas if that is allowed these days.

    This is exactly the type of stunning artwork that inspired me to be an engineer – the idea of making beautiful machines to make the world a better place.
