World's Largest Airport

Light years away from the misery and shabbiness of Heathrow, Beijing has opened the world's largest airport in time for the 2008 Olympics.

Beijing's new airport has a floor space of 986,000 square metres, double the total area of the first two terminals.

The building is formed in the shape of a dragon, and was designed by British architect Lord Foster. It will handle 76 million passengers a year.

Maybe Heathrow will be given a similar upgrade, and makeover, in time for the 2012 Games?

Fat chance!
