Heaven will smell like the airport

Just a few unpublished photos from a recent tour of the soon-to-be-upgraded areas of the Eastern Iowa Airport. After years of the hassle of flying in and out of St Louis and DFW, I've come to love flying out of CID (until it's time to dig the car out of the snow).

Baggage carriers park outside the terminal on Friday, May 20, 2011, in Cedar Rapids. After an $8.2 million project with an addition is complete, the garages pictured will be converted into suite space for the airlines and bags will be delivered to the TSA screening area by a bag belt that runs the length of the terminal check-in area.
