Too Awesome for Words

The largest model airport in the world:

1:87 scale, with 40 autonomously moving airliners that taxi, take off and land at realistic scale speeds, 90 ground vehicles that also move autonomously. 

I used to build models (WWII fighters, mostly) and this just blows my mind. It took $5 million and over half a million man-hours to build. 

More here. The home page, with other miniature cityscapes is here.

I want an airport like that! As a pilot and airline employee, that is the most awesome thing I have ever seen.
