An airport in Japan, Narita International Airport, recently completed the second runway expansion necessary to handle the regions growth and increased air traffic. This is however no ordinary expansion. The engineers had to build around an existing farm. The owner of the farm apparently refused to move and take any form of compensation for his land. So the airport built around him. I’m not sure of the person’s logic but I certainly would not want to live next to an airport regardless of my connection to the land. I wonder if he is now pleased with his decision to to stay now that an enormous airport surrounds his property.
