The international terminal, scheduled to open a week from today, speaks with a global voice and a welcoming Texas twang to put travelers at ease.
The terminal opens with international flights July 6. It took 12,500 tons of steel and 920,000 tons of concrete to construct -- enough concrete for a sidewalk going from D/FW to beyond Montreal.
Terminal D was built during the most volatile time in aviation history. Under its graceful, glassy skin, it's a steel-reinforced behemoth, augmented with almost $80 million in security features.
