From the looks of it, this terminal seems taller than HKIA overall.

Does anybody have a clue what they're going to put on the roof, glass? I don't know how to say this but have you guys noticed that most airport roofs are covered on the outside while in inside part of the roof is where the metal stuffs are and its usually not that much, but the Beijing one they seem to have the entire roof made from these steel beams.

The interior needs to match the red colored roof, kinda hard I think.

I was referring to Terminal 1 and 2. T3 is nothing like the US style airport except for maybe the new NW terminal in Detroit.

Yep. The McNamara Terminal in Detroit and Denver Int'l are as good as it gets here.

And Detroit's building a second terminal to replace the rest of the old stuff, it will be done in two years! Then Detroit overall and Denver will be the best in the country.

Thanks in advance!
Bingo! Here's your answer at last.

Beijing To Start Work On Airport-Downtown Metro Line

Asia In Focus - 9/1/06

Construction of a metro line connecting Beijing's airport and downtown will start this month and be completed in June 2008, in time for the Olympics. The 27.3 kilometre line runs from Dongzhimen, a pivotal point on the east wing of the Second Ring Road, to the No. 2 and No. 3 terminal buildings at Beijing Capital International Airport, said Liu Jian, an official with Beijing Municipal Commission of Reform and Development.

The new line will allow trains to travel at a maximum speed of 100 kilometres per hour and a trip to the airport will take only 16 minutes, compared with at least 30 minutes by taxi on an expressway.

The project is designed to operate at least 15 hours a day, carrying more than 4,500 passengers per hour at the peak hours, said Liu, who is in charge of infrastructure construction.

Whoa! What happened? How much damage did it cause? Will the airport be finished in time for the Olympics?

Hope everything/body is ok.

Why so concerned? It's just the smoke. The accident itself is nothing major.
