They're building like CRAZY FAST!!! Didn't they start like early last year? Also, what's this about Beijing building a SECOND airport? Anyone have more info on that?

The expansion of HKIA is also new to me... first time i saw those renders...

did i miss something? I thought US style means not very big terminal and very old building/design

Can't wait to see the interior I hope its just as stunning as the exterior and better than HKIA.

It's kindna hard to figure out the real colours for now, as to get to the final look, it will have gone through several re-painted steps.

is there any connection between T3 and T2?

is there any connection between T3 and T2? Looks like they are separated.
Thanks in advance!

Yeah there's a runway in the middle. I don't think they're linking it with an APM, perhaps you'll have to take a bus between them.

If I were Beijing I'd tear down all the current infrastructure and build another mega terminal like T3. It'd be easier than building a second int'l airport as proposed.

An Underground Walkway (and a people mover perhaps?) will connect the three buildings. See the following picture:

JFK and Chicago O'hare comes to mind. Pretty crappy looking airports...well at least the baggage claim and ticket counter area. I was suprised how ugly and old New York JFK looked when I flew there last year.

Hopefully the government will do something to make these airports look better. The airports in Austin and Detroit (Northwest terminal) look nice because they're new.

This whole picture is T3, he was referring connecting this new terminal to terminal two(current international terminal), which is not shown here.
