Bălți International Airport (IATA: BZY, ICAO: LUBL), also known as Bălți–Leadoveni International Airport, (Romanian: Aeroportul Internațional Bălți-Leadoveni) is the second largest international civilian airport in Moldova and one of the two main airports in Bălți, serving the city of Bălți and northern Moldova for civil passenger and cargo flights. Bălți-Leadoveni International Airport was opened in 1989 to replace Bălți-City Airport particularly on international routes and to ease air traffic to Chișinău International Airport.The second airport in Bălți is the first historic Bălți airport for scheduled flights - the Bălți-City Airport in the "Autogara" ("Bus Station") area, located in the eastern limits of the Bălți urban area, which after the commissioning of the Bălți-Leadoveni International Airport in its last years of active operation (late 1980s) was used as a regional airport used for emergency services, agriculture, aviation works and regional transport.
Bălți International Airport is capable of round-the-clock operation throughout the year and is located outside the Bălți city boundaries, in the village of Corlăteni, Rîșcani District, 15.1 kilometres (9.4 mi) from Bălți city centre (9.7 kilometres (6.0 mi) from the northern outskirts of the city district of "Dacia", or as it is called "Bam"), with direct access to the European route E583 / M5 expressway and the Republican Road R12.

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.
