No, but I can see the resemblance.

This is a bit different than the other posts, but I thought might be fun.
Stumbled across a display in an airport showing the outline of various airport terminals.

Sorry for the light fixture reflections, but I think still usable.



How many can you identify?

Fun challenge!

I can't get very many, but my best guesses —

Panel 1 (top to bottom):
?
?
?
MCO

Panel 2:
?
?
?
?

Panel 3:
?
?
ORD
DTW

Panel 4:
EWR
IAD
?


edit: with a little bit of quick educated-guess googling, I got a few more answers, but I'll leave those off for now in case others want to guess. It's funny how disorienting it can be to look at the maps this way.

That's a cool display... My guesses:

Top row: ?* DEN ? EWR
Row 2: ATL ? ? IAD
Row 3: SFO ? ORD DFW
Row 4: MCO ? DTW

*- Possibly LAX but that seems like a stretch

I see the resemblances for your SFO & LAX guesses, but I'm pretty sure it's not those. I also considered ATL for the same one you guessed, but I again think it doesn't quite seem right.

There's definitely a bit of ambiguity here, since someone's had to make an editorial decision about what airport bits make it into the silhouette and what don't.

I am guessing the top left (blue) one is the airport that hosts this display?

I'm curious to see the answers in the end!

That one resembles PDX.

Thinking MSP is the other Row 1 terminal and CLT the first ? in row 2.

I don't think it's ATL either -- the actual F terminal isn't the same shape as A-E.

The SFO guess is definitely not SFO either, although I'm embarrassed that I only got it by cropping that piece and putting it into Google Image search.

​​​​​​​Agree that the 3rd one in row 1 is MSP.
