Kallang Airport, Singapore

Singapore's Changi International Airport is one of the best airports in the world and is capable to handle 70 million passengers annually. It is projected to surpass its 100-million passenger mark in the next three years. The success of Singapore's aviation industry is contributed by many factors. Just like any other stories, it has its fair share of humble beginnings.

 As we strolled around Kallang, we came across a decrepit art-deco building along Nicoll Highway. The heavily fenced complex used to be Singapore's airport and served the country from the 1930s to 1950s before it was transferred to Seletar Airbase. Today, Kallang Airport sits eerily silent on the middle of Singapore's bustling district. So much of what we do in the past is ephemeral and quickly forgotten.
