You know how when you see project or construction renderings, the imagery always seems so polished, glossy and beautiful looking? You always hope the final product will look just half as good as the original artist’s touch, but the real thing just never seems to be quite as beautiful. Well, in the case of the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport – the exact opposite is true. The final product, to me, looks even more beautiful than the original artist’s concepts.
We spent the afternoon touring the new airport site. From the outside, there is still so much land-work to do one would think the open date set for May 23rd is utterly unreachable. But, once we ventured into the terminal it became clear that the airport will definitely make its date. Already, many of the necessary systems are in place, the drywall is up and tile being laid. The baggage claim area is nearly complete and upstairs 4 of the 7 gate bridges are already in place. We even took the 10 story trip up the control tower and took in the view of the whole place and, man, it looks spectacular. I could bore you with all the superlatives, but, why would I when I have pictures. Take a look.
Well folks, we’ve done it again. You see them here first – new aerials of the new Panama City Airport have been released and they show the runway extension of Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport as almost complete.
The runway extension is heavy production, the terminal is almost complete and we’re just a few short months away from seeing those beautiful canyon blue jets flying over our beaches. Here are the latest aerials of the brand new, but not yet completed Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.
Man, we’re getting so close to landing Canyon Blue planes in Panama City. Every time I see new aerials I’m thoroughly impressed with how far along the new Northwest Florida International Airport (actually, formally named Northwest Florida Panama City International Airport) is. Lets get right down to it!
Boy how time flies when you’re having fun. With construction to end in just 8 short months and planes to start landing on the new runway the construction process seems to be flying by. I remember thinking how far away May 2010 seemed when they started construction.

These are large renderings from the new Bay County Airport. They’ve been on the PCBDaily shelf for a while and recently someone asked to see them so we thought it appropriate to show them to everyone. Enjoy.
