    Denver International Airport was reputed to be an "all-weather" facility that would operate seamlessly in a blizzard, but when it failed during the January snowstorms (closed for 45 hours), an embarrassed airport spokesman, Chuck Cannon, admitted he'd like "to choke the person who came up with (the 'all-weather') term." The Associated Press then discovered a 1992 interview with Chuck Cannon, bragging to reporters about his new "all-weather" airport. [Rocky Mountain News, 12-28-06]

    :big_smile: :lol: HAHAHAHAHA I remember this one well because I lived in Colo during all the DIA planning and building stages.Now ask yourself this question as we did then .ALL WEATHER,Hmmmmmmmm.You can make the tower AW,you can make the terminal AW,you can make the parking garage AW ,but how in the HELL do you make the runways all weather?Last time I looked the planes still had to land outside and a good blizzard can easily stay ahead of what ever clearing operations you can do.Besides its hard to land planes in Zero vis,four feet of snow and or ice on the runway and a 70 MPH crosswind.Actualy you can land the planes easily, SURVIVING the landing is slightly more difficult and getting the planes to fly again after they are broken down into kit form is the hardest of all.:lol: :big_smile: Notice the guy that said it is an AIRPORT SPOKESMAN,not an airline pilot.:tounge_out: :big_smile: :wink: :lol: :eek:oooh:
