Although few would initially consider an airport a community, these sprawling sites of aviation technology do qualify according to the definition in the Wordsworth's Concise English Dictionary. Community: common possessions or enjoyment: people having common rights: a body of persons in the same locality: leading a common life: a common affinity. Certainly the thousands that enter daily any major hub share common possessions, rights, a shared locality, and an affinity or need for travel. More than a few frenzied business flyers might admit that their base airport is a more familiar location than their suburban or urban neighborhood.
