Whether you are seasoned traveler or are just an aviation enthusiast, David Wragg's The World's Top 500 Airports is a reference book you will enjoy spending hours paging through.

You'll find brief histories of each featured airport, details of runways and terminals, the number of passengers handled annually and aircraft movements.

The background information not only includes a little history and information on renovations but it also mentions the serious accidents - or in some instances, terrorist incidents - that have occurred at each facility. You'll also find lists of the top 500 airports based on either passengers handled, cargo handled or aircraft movements.

IATA codes are also included as is a glossary of special terminology. Over thirty pages of color photos picture airfields and terminals from Denver, Chicago and Kansas City to Edinburgh, Scotland, Barcelona, Spain, and Brunei.

Whether you need the information for planning a trip or routing freight or are just curious about the features of various facilities, this is an excellent book to consult about many of the airports found around the globe.
