World Airports - Zurich Kloten International Airport............Initial plans for the airport, was laid out in the Swiss Federal government's scheme of 1945, were centered on facilities capable of handling international airline traffic. Aircraft of up to 80 tons were envisaged. The primary runway was to be designed for use in all weathers and at night, with a 400 m wide hard surface running to 3,000 m in length. Additional 100 m areas were to be provided on the shoulders for lateral protection in case of runway excursions. Additional domestic runways, between 1,000 and 1,400 m in length, were also to be built.....#international #airport #d =flughafen#zurich #kloten #airplane #flugzeug #control #tower #terminal #building #hall #blue #sky #white #clouds #crane #green #grass #swiss #airlines #fliegen #hills #trees #
