A Brief Memorial to the Weirdest Airport Experience in America

(Last Updated On: June 6, 2019)

Every time we fly into the east coast we wonder for a moment if this will be the airport with the weird contraptions that rise to allow you to deplane and then slowly amble across the airport like some strange form of transport from an alien world. It’s like stepping into a time warp, the future as envisioned in 1959.

Alas, it never was the right airport, since we haven’t flown into Dulles in years. . . and now it will never be, as Dulles is in the process of replacing their rolling “lounges” with a sleek and modern train.

I’m sure it will be faster and probably more comfortable, but it certainly won’t be as interesting.

For those wanting to experience one last trip, check the video.
