Location: Txorierri Valley near Sondika, Spain Date Established: 1934 Architect: Santiago Calatrava Construction commenced during the civil war for the airport to be used solely as a military base. It was not until 1940 that it was decided to build an airport for civilian transportation. Soon after that, regular flights to Madrid were established. The new design, by Santiago Calatrava, is made to resemble an enormous bird that is just about to take flight.

The Denver international Airport also features the only passenger bridge in the world where passengers can watch airplanes take off underneath them.
