Futurama '39 Three

Future City > World's Fair City

If you think getting the airport is a headache today, imagine one where the terminal can rotate miles away from you at a moment's notice.

This is an aerodrome of 1960. There aren't any runways, because none are needed. It is a gigantic disk floating on a pool of oil with all the hangers and other building riding upon it. The idea was that the aerodrome could be rotated so that it sat in the best direction in relation to the wind.  

How that helped pilots land, I'm not sure, because the disk seems a bit thin on visual references.
