STO ARN (3)

...previously on pixels

Time to leave Stockholm-Arlanda Airport for now. Here's a view towards Terminal 5 from the multi-storey garage. With 18 million passengers in 2007 this is Sweden's largest airport and #3 in Scandinavia. 42 km north of Stockholm, Arlanda was officially opened in 1962 and its name is a pun on the Swedish verb "landa", which means "to land".

I saw this image on the City Daily portal and I thought, that looks like Los Angeles International airport! Interesting how similar they are -- at least from this wonderful photo's perspective.

I am really enjoying your blog.

It was kind of odd for me to go visiting the airport since I'm not exactly a frequent flyer. As in "never". Sort of.

Laurie: I had no idea Arlanda would resemble LAX from this angle, thanks for a surprising insight.

Carrie Hayes: I'm not sure the architects would appreciate all my strange angles but at least I have fun finding them... ;)

JM: Thanks, greetings right back to you.

Rafa: I'm afraid Swedish is supposed to be a difficult language to learn, good to hear that you've got a flying start! ;)

Thanks for commenting. This post ends my little airborne mini series from Arlanda.
