Built in 1928, the then-named Wayne County Airport, experienced many expansions and events over the years to become the major metropolitan airport that it is today, including expansions by the Army during World War II. The airport contains approximately 120 Shops and Restaurants. Covering approximately 5 square miles, this airport is Detroit's busiest airports with millions of visitors per year from around the world.
During the day, weather permitting, you get a distant view, on the webcam, of the airport complex and main runways. Watch the large passenger planes as they take flight or land throughout the day. At night, lights from the planes and complex turn the airport into a miniature city. So this spectacular view is available day or night.
