American War Of Independence Airport

if you build it, they will come in covered wagons

American War Of Independence Airport would be made entirely out of simple materials, using traditional carpentry and metal forging methods, and in the style prevalent in 1775 when President Trump claims that the army were successful in overcoming them. (against all odds - see link)

Constructed as a type of themed museum, every aspect of a modern airport would be replicated. The actual aircraft would be faithfully built versions of the type of flying machines long proposed by the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and many others.

Horse drawn, canvas covered wagons deliver everything including visitors who would enter the mostly rustic wooden terminal building to be greeted by period dressed security figures bearing muskets.

“Ye Olde McDonalds” would serve 'not so fast there buddy' food hagged off whole carcasses roasting on open fires, with straw sucking duelling banjo style musicians adding to the atmosphere.

The inevitable souvenir shop would sell “War of Independence Airport” items, ranging from model planes piloted by period dressed figures; to passports printed on aged vellum using ancient presses.

The recently discovered War Of Independence Airport would be opened by none other than the Stable Genius Donald Trump, who would declare in triumph that he was right after all.

       I think it's fair to say that, immediately after 1775, not a single airport remained which was not in the hands of the army.

       Hmmm, we seem to have the same idea - link.   

       Priority to be decided by thumbs wrestling.

       I think you win.

       It's impossible not to be impressed by the forbearance of the Admiralty, who didn't deploy Britain's fleet of advanced nuclear hunter-killer subs against the rebels (although the Fleet Air Arm did torpedo the Bonhomme Richard from a Fairey Swordfish ).

       ah - but once they saw their Noah's Ark War Of Independance Aircraft Carrier Sister Ship, that was it. (see creationmuseum link descriptor)

       Hey, when we built Old Ironsides, the first boat made entirely of iron, the British Navy, as well as their allies the Native American SEAL teams knew the jig was up.

       //when we built Old Ironsides, the first boat made entirely of iron//   

       Uh, 'scuse me. The Trial was the first practicable all-iron ship, launched in 1788 in Shropshire, England. The first iron- hulled merchant ship to cross the Atlantic was the Great Britain, and guess where that was from?

       The sun never sets on the British Empire. Which makes the lack of better air conditioning all the more regrettable.

       The reason the sun never sets on the British Empire is because God (despite the fact that he's English ) doesn't trust the British in the dark.

       ^it might be worse than you know, as the UK hardly gets any direct sunlight

       True; but thankfully the light that shineth from Boris Johnson's arsehole pretty much makes up for it.

       Yes, but every time he talks the light flickers.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 06 2019
  

       The light that shines half as bright, shines half as high.

       Between the Trial and Old Ironsides, guess which one is still afloat?

       Can I be one of those battler re-enactor people? I could hold the period signal flags and direct the ... No, wait, I have a better idea. Surely I could play the role of ale smith.

       There's an obvious opportunity for a remake of "Airport '76" in the style of "Sleepy Hollow" ... "Airport 1776" ...
