Not at all! I got all the info from the net, much of them in Simplified Chinese. I don't even live in Mainland China!

I don't think the terminal can handel anymore than 66 gates.

the other 60 or so access points they were talking about probabley are parking spots that are around the terminal.

Chinese airports are very profecient and willing to bus people to their planes that are parked in the middle of the apron

As mentioned earlier, T3 will have 69 sets of aerobridges, of which 14 sets are to be shared by 2 gates. That means there'll be 83 aerobridge-served gates. So any extra nos. are expected to be remote gates served by airport buses.

Great pictures as always celestar0.

I have gone to Carnoc.com and cannot find the photo search engine, can you give me a direct link to it?

I browse Carnoc's sub-forum "Civil Aviation Photo Threads" (my translation from Chinese) for almost all of the updated pix posted on Carnoc. The sub-forum's 1st page: http://bbs.feeyo.com/cache/forum/0016/1.html.

The thread search engine is immediately above the thread list. AFAIK the pix in Carnoc's sub-forums can't be directly searched.

Thread search engine for all sub-forums: http://bbs.feeyo.com/query.jsp

"Flyers' Photo Archive" http://pic.feeyo.com/ is a sub-page of Carnoc somewhat partly similar to Airliners.net or the likes. There's a photo search engine but it functions independently from that of the sub-forums. Pix not as updated as in CAPT.

I'm not saying they didn't do a good job already, I just remember reading that the wealth disparity in China is growing (there's some index that measured income and population, and measures the area of the graph compared to that of a perfectly straight line (representing perfect wealth distribution).

Anyway, the pictures look absolutely fantastic... when the terminal is done it will be amazing.

You do realise that NO country in the world has a straight line for wealth distribution, and that a straight line = communism.

even with communism the wealth distribution isnt a straight line. All over the world the wealth gap is growing larger and if u think about it it makes sense that it should. those who have more money invest and gain higher returns than those who have just enough money to survive. Not saying this is the best situation but that this is something happening everywhere in the world, not unique in anyway to china.

Given the large number of double deck bridges installed, do they really expect THAT many A380s? Considering the 747 can't use these bridges.

Out of these many "double-deckers" only 4 are A380-capable (1 @ T3A, 3 @ T3B, no data for T3C). The rest are for other wide-body aircrafts currently in service, having an internal layout similar to those double-decked aerobridges serving Incheon. The latter is an alternative design to the popular "scissors-type" aerobridges.

So the rest of the double deck aerobridges can only access the plane at one level, right? The upper level is just for better passenger traffic management?

Yes, for example:

http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1188513/L/

Anyway I think some of them can be easily modified to handle A380s to meet future demand, as long as the spans between these aerobridges are wide enough!

hey u'r jealous..you mean this building should be built in your country/city or the country/city you emmigrated(or are planning to emmigrate) to , instead of any single city in mainland China. because the only things in Chinese people's daily life is to get rich and get rich..
who told you Chinese people are not doing the closing wealth disparity or blah blah blah things ....??

if you talk that in beijing street, the citizen will call you "Sha Bi" and wonder if you come from Mars...

hmh..am I the only one, who has somehow the impression that the terminal looks somehow 70`s like?

Not like an airport from the 70`s but an airport from 2007, designed in 70`s style....the colours, the shape, the ceiling....
