Another article?[edit]

This is Stapleton International Airport - not Stapleton Neighborhood.

As a lover of airports, perhaps there should be a Stapleton Neighborhood article along with a Stapleton Airport file? As the newly added map seems to imply the Stapleton neighborhood feel where this page should highlight what happened at the Airport, IE which airlines on which concourses, the runway layout, for instance, and removing the 'Neighborhoods of Denver' category to the other page. This was the first airport I ever flew into commercially so I feel sort of an obligation.

I guess I would be fine for that. I personally think we could have both on one page, but if you want to separate it out, go ahead. Vertigo700 16:33, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

I simply restructured the main page, though I'd be in favor of moving the neighborhood component to another page if it continues to grow. SportingFlyer 23:28, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

Runways[edit]

Does anybody have a list of the runways and their lengths? I've been dying looking for them! --67.177.244.157 08:44, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Diagram[edit]

Is there an airport diagram of the former airport? CoolGuy 17:47, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes, on [1]. Try Mark Bird's Scans #1. Runway length as well. SportingFlyer 03:58, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Not anymore, apparently. That site's gone. --Jnelson09 00:33, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Different airports[edit]

It doesn't seem that odd to arrive and depart from different airports. How about LAX-JFK, EWR-LAX. CoolGuy 17:47, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

  • No, it is odd, in a sense that you are landing at DEN airport, but at different locations. You leave from Denver Stapleton on Monday for your weeklong vacation to Honolulu. You return the next Monday from Honolulu and arrive at Denver International. Hence, you arrived back at a different airport than where you left from. In other words, you never made a true round trip. However, instead of being charged an open-jaw ticket (LAX-JFK-EWR-LAX), you simply paid for a standard roundtrip, DEN-HON-DEN ticket. Get it? --Mrskippy 19:42, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Yeah, or, you arrived in Denver at the soon to be closed Stapleton on Monday, but left Denver via the newly opened Denver on Friday. --Jnelson09 00:38, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


  • How far away from each other are Stapleton and the new airport (DIA)? I mean IIRC, DIA is in the middle of nowhere. People parked their cars at Stapleton and flew into DIA and then eventually had to find a way to get back to Stapleton to pick up their cars from the abandoned airport? Seems crazy, did they have to pay for parking? Shuttles between airports? Sorry, I am just really curious and would love to hear from someone who knows.

Accidents[edit]

I changed the label on this section. It formerly was labeled as "Incidents." Aviation nomenclature requires that the "accident" label be applied, anytime any passenger or crew suffers serious injury, or there is significant damage to the aircraft. EditorASC (talk) 02:17, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Attached photo[edit]

The attached photo is good, but it doesn't include the terminal area. This is a photo of the north end of the runways, looking NW, with I-70 bisecting the photo. The terminal would be below and to the left; outside the image.

I just added two photos that I took in January, 1966. Hope that helps to attract some others, which pre-date 1996.

EditorASC (talk) 15:27, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

I just added a photo of the control tower, taken in 1995. Lthanlon (talk) 07:59, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
