13 Weirdly-Shaped Airports

Airports are strange things, indeed.

I mean, one or two (or more) long, thin strips of pavement up next to a few long, twisted buildings with a bunch of planes connected to it make for a peculiar scene from the air. And the fact that these elements can be arranged into infinite combinations makes airports some of the most bizarre things you can find on a map. On my random scoutings of the Google Maps Satellite View I have come across some particularly unusual formations, some of which I’ve screenshot and posted below.
