By the time that the Denver International Airport was opened on February 28, 1995, it was over a year behind schedule and $2 billion over budget. The airport, which replaced the Stapleton International Airport, was and still is the largest airport in the United States by land area.

Prior to the opening of DIA, Stapleton International was Denver’s primary airport. However, due to their runway layout problem and lack of available space for expansion, it was replaced with what is now Denver International. 

Whereas Stapleton’s runways were too close together and therefore had little space for landing, Denver International Airport’s runways have a stranger design: they appear to be arranged in the shape of a swastika.

The airport was also designed with a series of underground tunnels that were supposed to be used for an automated baggage system. However, the system never worked and was part of the reason for the delayed opening.

The baggage system was was abandoned by 2005, and for the most part there were no attempts to fix it. As a result, some people speculate that the tunnels are actually used as part of a bunker or underground headquarters of some sort.

There are also several murals throughout the airport that portray soldiers hunting children with weapons, destroyed monuments, crying mothers, and dying animals, among other horrifying subjects.

Additionally, the mascot of the Denver International Airport, which is a giant blue mustang with glowing red eyes, standing 32 feet high and weighing 9.000 tons. It is quite the imposing figure for an airport. The statue itself has a horrible past: it fell on its creator, Luis Jiménez, and killed him by severing an artery.

Many conspiracy theorists think that the purpose of the airport is to host world leaders in the underground tunnels in the case of some sort of disaster or apocalypse.  Others think that it was built by the Nazi group the New World Order, or possibly built to be the headquarters of the Illuminati.

Let us know what you think!
