I read that - so funny. He wants a GOOD airport... not one of those crummy, rundown airports.

There's an airport in Atlantic City waiting for a name.

Has he asked what JFK did to get that airport in NY named after him?

I thought oh no, would there be a ship named after him? But a link in the yahoo story says maybe not.


There’s Probably Never Going To Be A USS ‘Donald J. Trump’

But don’t count on there ever being a USS Donald J. Trump—for the same reason there isn’t a USS Richard M. Nixon and probably won’t ever be a USS William J. Clinton, USS George W. Bush or USS Barack Obama.

Trump is divisive and, among Navy leaders, unpopular. More to the point, the secretaries of the Navy who shape ship-naming conventions seem to be increasingly wary of naming ships after any president. “They sort of appreciate how controversial that stuff has become,” said Robert Farley, a University of Kentucky political scientist and historian.

Maybe Putin will allow him to rename Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow (just as soon as Donald pays off his loan debts).



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I already try to fly "around" the Reagan airport (you can't really). I simply wouldn't fly to a Trump airport.

There is a parking lot off of Correctional Facility Rd by Sing Sing that might be turned into an STOL airstrip. After Trump moves in, he can gaze out his window at Trump Airport.

It would be so awesome if some municipality named their new sewage treatment plant after Trump.

Not so sure about Danbury but I'd bet John Oliver would be willing to swap.

There is a landing strip deep in the Everglades of Florida that was supposed to be the new Miami Jetport. Surrounded by a swamp, it was abandoned after being declared an environmental disaster. Today the strip is home to snakes and other cold-blooded creatures.
It was an expensive failure.

Seems perfect.
