Millard Airport (IATA: MIQ, ICAO: KMLE, FAA LID: MLE) is a public airport located seven miles (11 km) southwest of the central business district of Omaha, a city in Douglas County, Nebraska, United States. It is owned and operated by the Omaha Airport Authority, who also owns the main airport of Omaha, Eppley Airfield.
Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Millard Airport is assigned MLE by the FAA and MIQ by the IATA (which assigned MLE to Malé International Airport on Hulhulé Island in the Malé Atoll of the Maldives).

This app shows satellite views of random airports. Its aim is to introduce you to the variety of airport structures embedded into the landscape.
This app is based on the Google Maps API, which on the one hand provides a powerful programming interface for web-based mapping applications, and on the other hand opens access to high quality satellite imagery for places all over the world.
The backend is realized in Python with the help of the excellent Flask micro framework.
The locations of airports have been imported from the public domain data provided by the aviation enthusiasts at OurAirports.com. The app displays randomly selected airports of the categories 'large_airport','medium_airport' and 'small_airport' for which runway coordinates are available.
Furthermore, the user interface incorporates icons from Font Awesome and fonts from Google Fonts.
This is brought to you by me, Florian Pigorsch.
