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..

    Creepy as hell

    People people. It’s all true the bunkers are only for the upper 1% in Colorado, like me. We were actually issued keys and have acces to an underground road from downtown Denver. Sorry poor people! But Denver did need a new airport, Stapleton was old and too close to the other 99%. No one wanted to build bunkers near poor people, they are always snooping around!

    Is that where Homer and the Stone Cutters would meet?

    WE DO!!!

  • dogsoldier

    WOW Chive….after reading your page for quite some time, I took it for granted that you guys were a bit smarter than this. Did you bother doing any fact checking before you fell for the conspiracy theories? It didn't take a previous poster much research to find enough information to debunk all your "facts" that you mindlessly repeated from some wacko, nutjob conspiracy site. Again, for those who care enough to get the facts:

    • paulson

      john mentioned he was just doing the post more for the WTF factor. As for smarts, I teach English and I'd like to see how well you can craft a thesis and support it as soundly as John did. It's also chronological.

      either way, john is certainly not dumb, I can tell you that

    • ilmill

      Right, because the Chive is known for it's hard hitting journalism and fact based anything… Jesus, let loose a little and agree that this is a little WTF worthy. Being right isn't as much fun as having a tid bit of an imagination.

  • J-Walk

  • Timothy B

    I have been reading about this stuff my entire life. The airport was funded by the Freemasons….they have a plaque commemorating this building. Pres. Obama went to this airport when we had the comet scare last year. Comet ELE.

  • Craigery

    *planes, not plans. I'm just so excited about this topic!

  • Ken

    Since I work about 20 minutes away from DIA, I am either picking someone up, dropping someone off or flying out of it about once a week. And Just like everyone lese in Denver, I hate the Mustang. I describe it as a meth-ridden horse from Hell. (if you see it at night, its eyes glow red.)

  • Mac In Houston

    I just keep thinking about this whole situation with Iran and these nukes…what if…nah, I ain't going there.

  • brirobe

    I suggest you check your facts. Sounds like all you did was rip off ideas from other conspiracy theorists on the web. Although there is no doubt the artwork is wierd, it doesn't mean its the depiction of some New World Order genocide. I have a lot of artist friends and they get paid a ridiculous amount of money to paint the most ridiculous things. Go to this site for the facts:

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      You *do* know that site was created by the masons, right?

    • jamison jones

      i think having the balls to post it is what counts here. sorry, i don't go to conspiracies.skepticproject every day

    • ilmill

      Facts are over rated, I find the conspiracy theory much more entertaining.

  • Leddy420

    Cheers…didn't think I would see this on the chive!

    Spread awareness, this is fucked up


    Anyone else noticed the phoenix breaking out of the glass capsule?

    • Martin A.

      thats not a phoenix, its a Quetzal, the Guatemalan national bird

      • Leddy420

        Well, obviously….a phoenix is a mythological creature, and the quetzal is an actual bird. Symbology is awesome?

        • Evil Dung Beetle

          Symbology? Now that Duffy has relinquished his "King Bonehead" crown, I see we have an heir to the throne! I'm sure the word you were looking for was "symbolism." Sssss-himbolism.

          • Trevor

            sym·bol·o·gy (sm-bl-j)
            1. The study or interpretation of symbols or symbolism.
            2. The use of symbols.

            • Evil Dung Beetle

              Yes, yes. I saw the word and it reminded me of the quote from Boondock Saints. That's all.

    • Daith_Lee

      Yes I did…signaling rebirth.

      You and I both are surprised….I JUST got finished explaining Freemasonry, The European Nations and good ole Adam Weishaupt and his Illuminati….come to the chive to decompress and find this… people need to open their eyes.

      #6 I don't see the "solar flare" the writer refers to. A burning rainforest with encroaching cropland, and maybe a polluted city in the background.

      But no solar flare, or anything from the Sun at all.

    • leaf

      actually the quetzel is extremely important in Mayan belief. The return of Quetzelquatel (spell check?) who was a main god of the Mayans is part of the "end of the world myth'' related to the whole 2012 end of the Mayan Calendar.

    • Guy

      Ya, Its actually a Quetzal and i think it means that it will over come the dover and rule as the symbol of peace
      I sill think that this stuff is FUCK and some bad ass bich is making it up!

  • zombie

    I think that the masons and whatever are just all a bunch of rich old men who have concocted this scheme to make people believe in some conspiracy or new world order or whatever, just to fuck with us all. That's right people, the masons are just an age-old trolling group.

  • dirtysteve99

    #5 Masonic symbols and references to lodges on there too.
    Freemasons are weird, they built a graveyard in Scotland (Glasgow I think) that, as you walk through it, the symbols present make it similar to the journey through Freemasonry.
    Very creepy fellas.

  • jtommy

    #4 could just be a reference to the following riddle:

    Which U.S. city is half golden and half silver? …. Denver

  • ramon

    If you think about it, in a time of disaster man made or otherwise, where is the LEAST likely place you would think to run to? Beware fellow chivers, the dark hand is @ work.

  • deleted6750212

    #6 Well this is 100% unsettling…

    • cheeptaco

      I am no conspiracy theorist, in fact I love laughing at them. That was until I saw this mural. Why in the Fuck? In an airport? Why? Fuck that, I'll fly around Denver from now on.

      • SadeShadz

        Exactly, why in the fuck?! o_O This mural is way to creepy to be in an airport.

    • texjosh

      Anyone else get a "Last Supper" vide at first glance with this one?

      • Kitty

        omg… It does spooky

  • Mtnclmbr

    Stapleton was by far NOT a functioning airport. Residential areas had encroached upon all sides, and there was no way to expand the airport, lengthen the runways. For those of us who remember, Stapleton sucked massively, and was old as hell (1929). I used to work at DIA, and I have been all over that airport. There is nothing strange going on, and if you look up the artist who did the murals and read what his interpretations are it all makes sense. There are countless tunnels yes, but there is a train system and what was supposed to be a baggage system running under the airport. And the New World Airport Commission was defunct by the time the airport was completed. Love the blueprint too…all blueprints are drawn by hand without the use of a ruler right?

    Yay, a post about my town and our creepy airport! Coming apocalypse you say? Ya'll know what to do… that's right….


  • dirtrider11

    Also, if you look at an aerial image of the airport using Google earth, you will see that the runways are lais out in the symbol of a Nazi swastica…..
