Theterminals and their concourses will face each other across a central area, developed inthe manner of a park, extending between the aircraft cross-taxiways at each end of thecomplex.--mstheme----mstheme----mstheme----mstheme--The West Terminal - first of the two to be constructed - was planned to handle 11.6million passengers per year by 1995 and 16.2 million passengers by 2005. It ischaracterized by a monumental portico on the landside. The portico emphasizes a gesture ofwelcome to passengers on both the arrival and departure levels. The airside consists of alinear concourse which provides access to and from the aircraft through 31 contact gates.The park will contain a control tower and support building, a parking structure, and amosque set in a plaza surrounded by formal gardens. Remote from this central terminalcomplex, there is another terminal; The royal pavillionis for use by the King, his entourage, and foreign dignitaries.--mstheme----mstheme----mstheme----mstheme--A view from the tower roof looking straight ahead.To the left is the passenger terminal and the runway.

The VCR is extremely spacious, and can accommodatefifteen controllers comfortably. During strong winds the tower can sway by as much as2 feet at the top, you can feel quite sea-sick--m
