The curious case of Banff Airport

Why Banff Airport Exists

Hidden away in the resort town of Banff in Canada lies Banff Airport. It’s a rectangular-shaped clearing, visible from the Trans-Canada Highway but it looks nothing like a regular airport or runway. The above video explains why the airport exists, why it closed and then reopened, and what it’s used for now. Local environmentalists weren’t happy with the reopening back in 2007 as they feared it would undo all the restorative effects on the local wildlife due to its initial closure.
