This airport in Montreal-Mirabel was opened in 1975. By surface area it was the biggest airport in the world until 1999. The biggest parts of the airport were never finished and same goes for the Highway to Hull (Highway exists, but was supposed to be extended). Passenger operations were ceased in 2004.
Parts of the airport were converted to a motorsport race track in 2008. Some Taxiways were closed marked with a yellow X and only important Taxiways for access to the Start and Landing strip were kept open.
This airport is now only used for cargo planes. Bombardier has a manufacturing space adjacent to the airport and a Flying school exists.
