History[edit]

I think the history section should be expanded to include the terminals buildings and additional topics. I added an ext link to the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. At one time Hobby (or Houston International) had a monorail system (so I heard). Have you heard of this? Postoak 03:48, 27 December 2006 (UTC) Here's something about the monorial, but I'm not sure if it was ever in production use. [1]

The old Sky Taxi was a short monorail that looped from the terminal

building out around what is now the multi-level parking garage and back to the terminal building. At the time (1965) there was only a surface-level blacktop parking lot between the terminal building and Airport Boulevard. The Sky Taxi was constructed in the wave of hype over the Seattle World’s Fair monorail and was at the time, along with the Astrodome, a mark of Houston’s cutting edge technology. Alas, before the Sky Taxi was fully functional it became obvious that more than a monorail, the airport required more parking. The Sky Taxi was abandoned and then dismantled. Before the parking situation was sorted out, Houston approved the construction of an newer, larger airport far to the north of the city. 202.79.62.19 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.79.62.19 ([[User talk:202.79.62.19|talk]]) 11:45, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Former Airlines[edit]

It was decided on the Sea-Tac talk page that the information about past airlines served little to no purpose and was removed. I didn't want to removed it here without asking the opinion first, but since the information on the Hobby article is slightly different in nature, I'll see what people think first.

listing former airlines is useful. It's part of the history of the airport. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.79.62.16 (talk) 02:37, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Header left.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Header left.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no [[Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline|explanation or rationale]] as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at [[Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline]] is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page. If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on [[Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#Images.2FMedia|criteria for speedy deletion]]. If you have any questions please ask them at the [[Wikipedia:Media copyright questions|Media copyright questions page]]. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:23, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Dubious Claim[edit]

“…Despite occasional claims of being the only U.S. commercial airport to be named after a woman, it was not named after Oveta Culp Hobby.” This is a rather suspicious claim. Can we have a citation of any documented case of someone claiming William P. Hobby is a woman and therefore the airport is named after a woman? Dubious at best. A single citation – just one – would transform this rather flimsy and clearly un-referenced claim in to something that is possibly worth retaining in this piece. Otherwise, what possible use is this meaningless bit of drivel? 202.79.62.19 11:01, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
