Its official. this is HUGE... much bigger than a super bowl event. this is like holding the olympics in austin

Time to start building hotels... lots of em.

Regarding the airport... that's funny. For a while ABIA had the longest runway in TX and was an alternate land site for the shuttle. Remember it was a military base first... Any plane can take off and land with ease on the west runway. 13K feet long. It was 14K feet long when the military ran it. DFW's strips were 10K feet but about 10 years ago they extended almost all of them to 12K feet. Jet bridgets are on hydrolics... they can adapt to 747s etc no problemo.
