This image was taken at London Gatwick. The bridge connects two portions of the North Terminal, right next to where the North Terminal is labeled on this map:

Map of London Gatwick Airport

London Gatwick claims to be the first airport to have such a feature. As can be seen in the photo, it is the largest in the world, high enough for a 747 to pass underneath.

This is not the only airport to have such a feature, though. Denver International also has a bridge (picture) over the taxiway connecting the terminal building with Concourse A. This one is not as high as the bridge at Gatwick and can't clear anything larger than a 737.

  • $\begingroup$ @FreeMan Interesting, I used Google and it identified Gatwick (and found the article I linked to). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You can see it in this Google Maps image -- they even took the photo just as a plane was going under the bridge. $\endgroup$
