Airport Heavy Metal

I know plenty of airport people who really don't care about aircraft. For me, it's the thing that sets our sector of the industry apart from the rest. A large portion of the airport industry, in Australia, are not in the aviation industry by choice. They are a council providing civic services of which one is the airport or they operate a mine or tourist venture which requires the airport in a support role. They come with little or no aviation experience, skills or knowledge and many would sooner gush over CAT's latest front-end loader than the new ATR 72 flying around Queensland. For those engineers, works supervisors and general road-works warriors out there, here is a cool new video of trucks, asphalt, men and some more trucks as they overlay one of Melbourne Airport's runways. Enjoy :).
