World-class Historic Rarity
Anonymous June 11, 2006 at 6:52 pm
Possibly the best-preserved pre-WWII international airport in the world, Helsinki-Malmi Airport in Finland has been selected twice (2003 and 2005) to the global List of 100 Most Endangered Sites by the World Monuments Fund. The Airport as a whole is also catalogued in the list of built cultural environments of national significance and in the Finnish selection of the international DoCoMoMo working party documenting and conserving significant monuments of modern architecture. Complete with original buildings and original runway system from more than 60 years ago, Helsinki-Malmi Airport is today the sole general aviation airfield in the Finnish capital region. It is also the foremost pilot education center in the country, and by operations the second-busiest airport in Finland. It is threatened by the plans of City of Helsinki to turn the runways into a suburb.
