King Abdulaziz International Airport

King Abdulaziz International Airport is a Saudi international airport located 19 km to the north of Jeddah. Named after King Abdulaziz Al Saud and inaugurated in 1981, the airport is the busiest airport of Saudi Arabia and the third-largest airport in the kingdom; the airport's Hajj Terminal was specially built for Muslim pilgrims going to Mecca annually on the Hajj. It is one of the largest in the world, can handle 80,000 passengers at the same time; the airport occupies an area of 105 square kilometres. Beside the airport proper, this includes a royal terminal, facilities of King Abdullah Air Base for the Royal Saudi Air Force, housing for airport staff. Construction work on KAIA airport began in 1974, was finalized in 1980. On 31 May 1981, the airport opened for service after being inaugurated in April 1981. In 2019, the new King Abdulaziz International Airport had a soft opening with a number of domestic flights transferred to operate from it; the airport is considered one of the largest of its kind worldwide.

Visitors and passengers will enjoy a number of facilities including 810,000 square meters lounges and a transport center that links between the building and the car park and train station. Moreover, the airport will have a huge aquarium with 10 meters in diameter and 14 meters in height as well as a capacity of million liter of water. Furthermore, a mosque with a capacity of 3,732 worshippers has been established in the airport. In August 2019, the airport started moving a number of international flights operated by Saudia to this new terminal, on the 18th of November Etihad has become the first non-Saudi airline to move to this new terminal; because of Jeddah's proximity to the holy city of Mecca, the airport has a dedicated Hajj Terminal, built to handle pilgrims taking part in the rituals associated with the annual Hajj. It can accommodate 80,000 travelers at the same time. Designed by the Bangladeshi-American engineer Fazlur Rahman Khan of the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, it is known for its tent-like roof structure, engineered by Horst Berger while part of Geiger Berger Associates.

Ten modules, each consisting of 21 "tents" of white colored Teflon-coated fiberglass fabric suspended from pylons, are grouped together into two blocks of five modules and separated by a landscaped mall between the blocks. Only customs, baggage handling and similar facilities are located in an air-conditioned building; the vast majority of the complex, called "Terminal Support Area", is a flexible, open area, conceived to function like a village, complete with souk and mosque. Not enclosed by walls, this area is sheltered from the intense sun while allowing for natural ventilation; the Hajj Terminal received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1983. According to the jury, "the brilliant and imaginative design of the roofing system met the awesome challenge of covering this vast space with incomparable elegance and beauty."At five million square feet, the Jeddah airport Hajj Terminal is estimated to be among the world's largest air terminals after Beijing Capital International Airport, Dubai International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport.

Many airlines from Muslim and non-Muslim countries have used the Hajj Terminal. Jeddah-KAIA airport serves as a major hub for Saudia who had the exclusive use of the South Terminal. In 2007, the owned Saudi carriers Flynas and Sama Airlines were given permission to use it. Due to the closure of Sama Airlines, the terminal was only used by Flynas; the terminal is now used by Flyadeal, Garuda Indonesia, Kenya Airways, Korean Air. The North Terminal at Jeddah airport is used by all other foreign airlines; the new King Abdulaziz International Airport three-stage development started in 2006, is scheduled for an official opening in mid 2019. However, as of 2018 local flights have been landing at the airport; the project is designed to increase the airport's yearly capacity from 13 million to 80 million passengers. The expansion includes a brand-new passenger terminal building, a 136-meter tall air traffic control tower, airfield hard-standing and paved areas, fuel network systems, electronic passenger guidance system and a new storm water drainage network.

There will be a newly constructed support services building and upgrades to the existing runway and airfield systems. The three stages, according to GACA—the General Authority of Civil Aviation of Saudi Arabia, will be marked by staged capacity increase to 30 million, 60 million and 80 million passengers per year; the new airport will be accessed by the Haramain high-speed rail project network. Prince Majed Street will connect to the Al-Laith Highway; the General Authority of Civil Aviation has the GACA Hangar at the airport. On 11 July 1991, Nigeria Airways Flight 2120, a Douglas DC-8-61, suffered cabin pressure problems followed by a fire due to a failed landing gear; the pilots tried to return to the airport but failed to reach it and the plane crashed, killing all 247 passengers and 14 crew. On 1 March 2004, an Airbus A300B4-200, burst two tires whilst taking off. Fragments of the tire were ingested by the engines, causing the engines to catch fire and takeoff was aborted. Due to substantial damage to the engine and the left wing, the aircraft was written off.

All 261 passengers and 12 crew survived. On 21 May 2018, an Onur Air-leased Airbus A330-200, operating as flight 3818 from Medina to Dhaka, was diverted to Jeddah after suffering a malf

1937 Perth Carnival

The 1937 Perth Carnival was the ninth edition of the Australian National Football Carnival, an Australian rules football interstate competition. Just like in the Perth Carnival of 1921 only South Australia and Victoria took a team to Western Australia. Only one of the games was a blowout, with Western Australia handing South Australia their worst carnival loss, in a 116-point win. George Doig kicked seven goals for the home side. In the second game, South Australia came close to upsetting Victoria and got within two points at the final siren; the last four scoring shots of the game were all behinds to South Australia inside the final two minutes of the game. The final game of the carnival would decide the overall winner and after going into the game as underdogs Victoria hung on against Western Australia at Subiaco Oval to win by eight points; the win was thanks to Victorian full-back Jack Regan restricting Doig to just three goals. Other Victorian stars who took part in the carnival included Haydn Bunton, Jack Dyer, Les Hardiman, Dick Harris and Keith Shea.

An enormous crowd estimated to be 40,000 people witnessed the final match between Victoria and Western Australia. The crowd set a new record for the highest crowd in Western Australian sporting history, exceeding by a considerable margin the previous record of 27,273 set at an interstate match in 1929. Considerable damage was suffered by facilities at Subiaco Oval, including the partial collapse of the fence around the arena, due to its inability to accommodate such a large crowd; the crowd of 23,263 to Western Australia's first match was one of the highest in the state's history, was drawn in spite of heavy rain which forced the traditional parade of teams to be cancelled. The inaugural Tassie Medal was awarded to Mick Cronin. Ned Hender was second with 9 votes, J. Hooper and Jack Regan were equal third with 7 votes each. 1937 Perth Carnival page on Full Points Footy
