The Tempelhof Airport in Berlin was once the largest and busiest in Germany, and one of Europe's iconic airports of the pre-World War II era. The building complex was designed to resemble an eagle in flight with a mile-long semicircular hangars forming the bird's spread wings. Its large, canopy-style roof were able to accommodate most contemporary airliners in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s, protecting passengers from the elements. It had two parallel runways over 2 kilometers long, and the airport's main building was once among the top 20 largest buildings on earth. Today, the airport is closed, but the grounds have been turned into a fabulous park.
