Phoenix International Airport (PHX/KPHX)



Phoenix Intl' Airport is a fictional airport based on Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) Terminal 3

Designed by Foster+ Partners, an architectural firm located in London, Beijing Capital International Airport terminal 3 is the largest single airport terminal in the world. Its minecraft counterpart, to be made in 2:1 scale will without a doubt assume the position of the largest airport made in minecraft.

Quotes
-Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times, 11/03/2008


But size is not all. Many large scale minecraft projects demonstrate an awful lack of detail, but this airport will be one of the most accurate and detailed minecraft airports despite of its size. And thanks to the airport's unique symmetry, only 1/4 of the terminal need to be made by hand.

Many airports you see on the top list are nowhere accurate and detailed. They demonstrate little or no research of a real life airport and aviation in general. And I'm tired of seeing those getting all the attention while the hidden gems are left unnoticed, so I decided to build my own.



Progress: Still pretty much on the drawing board...
(I abandoned my several previous attempts due to their inaccuracy)

*Stats will be made available after completion of all building plans.

Runway 18-36
Runway 17-35
North apron and taxiways
South apron and taxiways
Terminal 3A
Terminal 3B
Terminal 3C
Cargo terminal
Hangars
Misc (fuel farms etc.)

Estimated size: 8000x3000
Gates: 80-120 or so
Estimated completion date: a long time... possibly 2+ years

Airlines list
*Uncertain

Actually... I've changed my  planes a while ago, now I'm designing my own airport instead of recreating a real life airport. The curved section of T3 is pretty much impossible in minecraft.

Yea I dont think anyone would have the patience to make a custom gate for every angle! :D
  • TheAerofans
  • Level 41

  • February 1, 2015, 5:00 pm
well I would take the time and make the gates, but problem is I'd have to place my planes diagonally... imagine how that would look in minecraft.

I don't think that's a built in function in MCedit, but I'm sure someone was kind enough to make a filter for that.

Since it is based on Beijing T3 and looks exactly like it, why not make it Beijing T3?
  • TheAerofans
  • Level 41
  • Master Engineer
  • January 8, 2014, 2:48 am
Well it isn't an exact copy of PEK T3. Plus I wanted a name that better suits the look of the airport.
Epic ! :D
