Something is rotten in the Denver airport (13 Photos)

Located 25 miles from Denver on a plot of land encompassing 53 square miles (twice the size of Manhattan), sits one of the most curious airpots in the world, The Denver International Airport. Leo and I had a long layover at the airport last weekend. As we walked around, we couldn't help but notice that something about this place isn't right. So I did some digging.

*Note: I'm not a conspiracy guy in any way, I fancy myself as more of a beer drinker, so take this post more in the spirit of WTF than an accusation. But anybody who has flown through Denver Airport will tell you this place is a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

Let's start at the beginning. Denver Airport was commissioned in 1989 at a cost of 1.7 billion dollars. The airport was finished in 1995, 2 years late, at a cost of 4.8 BILLION dollars, roughly 3.1 billion over budget, like ya' do. The airport was privately funded, and nobody really knows by whom. A marker stone in the terminal reads the airport was funded by The New World Airport Commission.

It should also be noted that Denver had a completely functional airport, Stapleton, that many people liked just fine. Stapleton was only 6 miles from Denver after all.

There was really no need to build the airport in the first place… unless you needed a construction project up above to mask a larger construction project happening down below. And this is where the conspiracies begin.

Many people believe that the largest underground bunker in the world lies beneath the Denver airport. Specifically a 360,000 sq. foot bunker, built by the New World Order to house the elites in case of economic collapse or nuclear holocaust. The construction of the Denver airport was necessitated as a dumb show; an above ground construction project to hide the the creation of something that lies beneath, hiding in plain sight.

Hints that the Denver airport is hiding something big are everywhere. Visitors to the Denver Airport will immediately notice a number of mysterious masonic symbols and murals clearly depicting the end of the word. They're hard to miss. Many believe these murals hold a deeper meaning which can be gleaned by the initiated of the New World Order and Freemasons. Let's have a look.

Finally, let’s return to those bunkers. The photo above is a blueprint of 5 buildings that were mysteriously buried during the early days of construction on the Denver Airport. These five large buildings were fully constructed and subsequently deemed to have been ‘positioned incorrectly.’

Rather than being demolished, the buildings were ordered to be buried, yes buried. The ‘underground bases’, as they are referred, are currently being used as “storage” according to airport authorities. This fact is not debated. We already know there is an underground structure beneath the airport. The real question is how deep the worm hole goes. We may never know…

UPDATE BY LEO: President Obama was in Denver Sept 27th last year when Comet Elenin passed by the earth, “barely missing” us by 22 miles. Some say, that if the comet would have struck earth, it’s back to the stone-age for us. Nonetheless, their was a chance that it could have hit and President Obama was conveniently ushered to Denver… which, in my opinion, adds more to the existence of not only a military bunker, but also the largest, most advanced bunker in the US -because the President wouldn’t go to some half-ass bunker if there was a threat of complete world destruction. Just sayin..

UPDATE 2: Just got a weird phone call from “Government Affairs” (whatever that is) on our office phone caller ID and they hung up after we answered. If this post disappears for some reason tomorrow, you know why..

    I have been in the Denver airport a few times, and I never really stopped to look around. I did find it odd that it was located so far from the city.

    The comet missed us by 22 MILLION miles, not 22 miles.

    Theres a crazy bunker thing in No. Cal. In Monte Rio to be exact. Its property backed ours, we were hiking in the redwooods behind our house and must of got on their property. there were weird obolisques (motion detectors?) and shortly after we came upon them 6 black unmarked cars were dispatched. We sat motionless in the tall wheat grass just observing as the men got out of the vehicles and appeared to search (for us)… It was crazy stuff… after they left we continued on the hike only to come across the opening of what seemed to be a deep underground cavern. I was scared we were going to be arrested. Freeking G Men and their FBI suits with shiny black shoes and sunglasses. The name of the place is Bohemian Grove.

    Ohh great! I loved the Chive for it’s apolitical, humorous view of the world… Now you have taken your success for granted, and are going to become one of those crazy, unreadable Davinci code blogs! Thanks for nothing!!!!!
    PS could you recommend a site that is as cool as you used to be?

    It has absolutely no meaning whatever, except you cannot trust public commissions to select public art — particularly when the commission decides that Mexican artists and little brown faces are under-represented in Denver's public art spaces. These junk murals ought to be scraped off the walls and burned, joining the ugly fiberglass sculptures out on the trash heap. Or maybe some do-gooder wants to buy the stuff — fine, display it someplace else. At least the guy who "sculpted" the plastic horse died when the head fell on his leg.

    Regarding the AUAG, supposedly an abbreviation for Australian antigen, it doesn't take an immunologist to know that an antigen is associated not with a horrible new killer germ causing disease, but is a creation of the immune system to fight disease, in this case, hepatitis. And you don't transport an antigen in a mining cart…

    I looked around a little on the net and the official story (which I suspect is true) is that "New World Airport Commission" is a name picked by a bunch of very wealthy Denver businessmen (and their companies) who put up the funding for this "new" airport and decided on the art and associated symbology. They hired a Mexican-American muralist/activist named Leo Tanguma to paint the ugly murals, and they made a bunch of references to Navajo culture, including the puzzling DZIT DIT GAII carving. (It supposedly means "White Mountain" in Navajo, one of four supposedly sacred spots for the Colorado Indians.)

    We never would have heard about this hack Tanguma if his paintings at DIA weren't so loathsome, and if whoever was responsible for the interior decoration of this airport hadn't decided that Mexicans and Indians needed to be represented all over the place. I've actually been to this airport a couple of times, and like virtually everyone else, I walked on by these murals thinking, whoa, that's some ugly stuff. But the conspiracy theorists have called enough attention to the murals that Tanguma, now in his sixties, is able to make a modest living from teaching. Every cloud has its own little silver lining.

    Ok, first of all, if you weren't a total idiot you would know that people make up all kinds of stupid things like the "AU AG" thing. Oh well…it couldn't possibly mean what it says it HAS to be a cover up. So ridiculous!! The Bronco that is outside is just that, a bronco symbolizing the DENVER BRONCOS FOOTBALL Team! If you had bothered to "research" farther you would know that around the time that this went up, the team changed their colors to a darker blue and orange as well as changed the logo!
    There was underground construction going on…it's called trains that take you from terminal to terminal and the baggage claim! I'm sure there is storage down there too and it probably would be a good idea to have things stored incase there was some sort of bombing or something. However what does that matter? Are you really stupid enough to think someone is hiding people or something down there? I mean really!
    Does it really matter that no one really knows who the major contributor of the airport was? People donate money, anonymously ALL the time! Yes Stapleton was a perfectly good airport however to compete with all the other INTERNATIONAL airports, they needed to make the reconstruction amazing, therefore they wanted trains and all the latest technology and there wasn't space for that in the middle of a big metropolitan city.
    I am from Denver, and have been through DIA many, many times (not once on a long layover) and have never seen these murals. Therefore they are probably showcasing a local artist and won't be up forever.
    Further more, IF there was some stupid "cover up" they wouldn't be posting murals hinting at this and other "clues" so people could figure it out. Your whole theory is just ludicrous.

      chill tfo, this is the internet.

    This was actually a really cool post… but just one nitpick I don't know if somebody already said but Luis Jiménez is actually from El Paso, Texas not New Mexico…just saying he's actually one of our best artist, may he rest in peace

  • Check your facts

    the link in the update by leo says the comet missed us by 22 million miles not 22…no conspiracy there

  • the Weapon

    I'm just thankful that posts like this, and all the stuff on 911 and the NWO, Bilderberg Group, etc, etc are totally unreasonable fabrications made up by silly people who for some reason feel the world is being stolen from beneath them .. Heheh .. Cause otherwise .. Oh wait, otherwise I would actually be tipping my hat and applauding the Chive not only for being the best web site in the world, but for having the balls to shed some light .. Well done, guys .. Don't disappear, and if you do, there's other outlaws and NWO haters around who will carry the light *8)

    OK! this site has just taken a turn for the crazy. it was nice while it lasted!

    The website said it passed within 22 million miles, not 22 miles

    There was quite A LOT WRONG with Stapleton. DIA is no conspiracy. I took a field trip in school there the day it was opened and I have also worked there. Learn some history on Denver before you start spewing random shit. Get over yourself.

    Phallic Imagery In Denver Airport

  • Chris

    This is seriously bizarre. An example of paranoia run rampant.
    But, if it was privately funded, and thus it's construction probably created lots of local jobs, what's the problem?
    Unless you think 'they' are planning to release the biological weapon?

    Okay I hate to be the party pooper here but I did some research on this. I love my creepy stuff as much as any one else but I prefer my mysteries unsolved and this one is unfortunately solved. Here are the facts.

    The underground rooms are for the trains that take people back and forth from the terminals, the rest are for the automated baggage system, maintenance, and storage.

    BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MYSTERIOUS WRITING ON THE GROUND IN THE ALIEN LANGUAGE! Its navajo words for sacred mountains in Colorado.

    There is a prison room! All large air ports have them now. From JFK to SFX. An airport is a small city in its self and most of them sell alcohol… that can cause trouble.

    Australia Antigen is the protein around the Hep B virus. Its used in Hep B tests. Also there is a cure for Hep B

    The Gargoyle is obvious. Gargoyles where thought to ward off evil spirits. Well a gargoyle in your suit case is keeping all those evil spirits away from your luggage. I think its pretty clever.

    As for the paintings they're dytchomy, which is two paintings of opposite effect displayed together. On one side you have the bad parts of war, on the other side the good parts of life.

    Finally here's a hilarious conversation between a PR lady for the airport and a denizen of the internets.

  • JCSull

    For all of you that just pass through DIA on lay overs, those of us in Colorado pass a giant sculpture of the Egyptian god death, Anubis, at the terminal. Super creepy. Gives a whole new meaning to the airport terminal.

  • throwawaygal

    There is also a weird placement of The Hanging Gardens of Babylon where you get off the trains….it's totally out of place….

  • RMA

    I don't think it's unreasonable to think there could be a military installation underneath, why not. As for the Mustang, I think that's an amazing piece of artwork that simply has the colors and form of Southwestern style art to me. I'm sorry that it actually caused the death of its creator, though. And as for the mural, which has a similar Mexican/Southwestern style, I think it's simply a very moving, and intentionally troubling, piece of art meant to evoke how the U.S., and the world, survived the bloodiest, most destructive, war-prone century in history and the hope that we have moved past that into a more peaceful and brighter future of greater cooperation. That's all. Any art referencing war is disturbing; think of Picasso's "Guernica." I remember hearing about the baggage system that never worked…maybe it only works in the event that they're using the bunkers!

  • not a native but got here as fast as I could

    I totally appreciate this article! I have heard many stories from very reputable people that not only there is a bunker under the airport but there is also a tunnel that leads to cheyanne my., which is where Norad is located. Makes sense to me. As far as the art goes…. 1. The horse has always freaked me out. As well as pretty much every other person I know here in Denver. 2. The murals are very odd. Not to say that is implying anything, but not the nest imagery before you get on a plane.
