Great news. I always knew some sort of work was being done on Bradley, but never really looked it up, or even knew it was on this scale.

I managed to find an awesome post on another message boards. This expansion looks AMAZING. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=997747

Most likely not right now, but it looks like they are expecting to raise money by increasing airport revenues, charging everyone and everything that lands or departs from there!! In other words "Welcome to Hollywood - Now give us your money"!! :rolling:

I'm sure the big airlines that use LAX now will still pay to keep using it, as for the smaller ones, they might actually turn some of them away. I'm sure they can use some of the satellite airports instead.

However, can you imagine the view from that aerial bridge (link at Josh's posting) when two 747's are passing under it?? Awesome!!

I know from what I have read about the expansion of th AS terminal at LAX we are contributing a lump sum for the upgrade of our terminal so I can say for sure the airlines are contributing.
