Mariscal Sucre airport sat amid cornfields when it was christened in 1960. On Feb. 19, the airport will close and a new airport will be built in an agricultural setting 12 miles (20 kilometers) northeast of the city. While the old airport can be reached from downtown in 20 minutes or so it will take at least an hour to get to the new airport, and no train-to-the-plane is yet planned. (AP Photo/Dolores Ochoa)
