In this Jan. 15, 2013 photo, the windows of a building reflect the image of a plane approaching the Mariscal Sucre airport for landing in Quito, Ecuador. Mariscal Sucre airport sat amid cornfields when it was christened in 1960, and on Feb. 19, the airport will close and a new airport will be built. The runway will become a grassy esplanade, and a flurry of construction is anticipated nearby. The newly revised code will allow for buildings as high as 40 stories, up from the current four.
