Name Canberra Airport?

By andym - 25 November 2012 43

Seems like a good idea.

Better then Snowtown or some lame pollie.

Change.org have a petition.

What’s Your opinion?

I figured John Stanhope would be a given.

There’s a precedent with other airports like JFK and Ronald Reagan named after famous world leaders. Surely John deserves one as well.

I’d have no problem with CBR being named after David Warren. He is an Australian who has made a difference to aviation the world over.

10 years old or otherwise, Eve Cogan makes a good point in her petition…

I know! Let’s name it… Canberra Airport? There’s only one, it’s not like you’re going to confuse it with another (the one behind Hume possible?). Haven’t Change.org got anything better to campaign on?

Sometimes the most obvious answer is the best one.

Beats doing what they do with the football stadiums etc. They’re playing at Endevour Field this week, sorry Ronson Park, I mean Caltex Field, oh f#%# it’s at Shark Park…ohhh forget it…

For things like stadiums where they sell naming rights to a sponsor, yes this can happen, but since we’re not offering to sell naming rights to the airport, I can’t see how this is relevant.

I personally don’t see a problem with this, and as such I’ve added my name to the petition. If you really feel that strongly about keeping the airport’s name the same, why not put up a counter petition, something along the lines of “save Canberra Airports name”?

Agree, good on Eva for showing initiative, however I do have to say that being reminded of black box voice recorders when I’m about to fly is not high on my list of things to think about.

Then again, being reminded of the safety technology which has gone into aviation since the wright brothers became the first people to get airborne without killing themselves is probably not a bad thing either.

I agree.
It should be re-named “Stanhope Interrelational Airport” as a tribute to the man and his reason for sharing his public art with us.

Yeah, but the art on display at the airport is actually interesting.

So much hate for Canberra Airport… again. Seems every thread on hear about the Airport or anything related to it brings out a truck load of sniping. What gives?

Perhaps you’d rather it returned to the era where it was a rusty, asbestos shed in a f-king paddock?

Childish.

Is that you, CT’s John Thistleton.

How much is Snow paying you?
