DENVER (INTELLIHUB) — The Denver International Airport (DIA) is nestled on a vast 53 square mile complex and is owned and operated by the City of Denver.  In fact, it’s the largest airport in the United States, in terms of land mass garnered, and the second largest airport in the world to Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd International Airport as I pointed out in my appearance on the Travel Channel series America Declassified.

The airport serves over 50 million passengers a year and is now incorporating a massive new project called “Airport City” an aerotropolis which has been presented publicly by the Mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, who respectively declined an interview with Intellihub News. However, interestingly, the new aerotropolis will incorporate an expansive business district with new lodging as well as an agricultural and technical district within the confines of the airport property to attract more revenue to Denver’s growing economy. In fact, between the planed aerotropolis and Colorado’s booming marijuana industry, DIA just might be the next biggest thing since sliced bread.

The concept is innovative, a first for an airport in America, and is likely to become the envy of other airports around the world. In fact, according to Airport City Denver’s official website:

In 2010, DIA and the City and County of Denver took a major step in DIA’s evolution to fulfill its gateway role by inviting firms from around the world to submit proposals to assist DIA in planning, assessing and creating an Airport City at DIA as the core of and competitive accelerator for the emerging Denver aerotropolis. Later that year, DIA selected MXD Development Strategists (MXD) and its collaborative team including Design Workshop, CH2M Hill, Dr. John Kasarda, Integrity Parking, Transcore and Ambient Energy to prepare the Denver International Airport City Development Strategy.

However, local residents and others have been questioning the new construction in and around the airport property as several red flags have been raised. In fact, since the first construction phases of the airport started in the early 1990′s, there have been several indicators that something else may be taking place on or under the grounds of the 53 square mile complex.

The Facility

Some speculate that a deep underground military facility, part of the Continuity of Government (COG) program exists on the site. A massive underground city to be used by our government in the event that Washington or our central governments command hub is compromised. According to some investigative reports, including one headed up by the former Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, the underground city that lies beneath the airport quite possibly connects to other deep underground military installations throughout the country.

Now, a source of mine within the airport confirmed for the first time astonishing information regarding the underground facility, providing details unknown to airport staff and the general public until now.

The following are details regarding a deep underground military installation located on the grounds of the DIA as provided by my source:

  • Level 1 of the airport is inset into the ground to protect from vibrations coming from underneath. The base board characteristics lead on to this technical design. The employees have been told the reason for this is to protect from vibrations from the public train that leads back and forth to all concourses, A, B, and C.
  • The airport’s gate and door numbers correspond to emergency action and response plans that indicate specific details to people “in the know”.
  • The design of the airport is built to throw people off as levels are labeled differently on each in some cases and grading changes make it difficult to pinpoint your actual elevation. This was a security feature added by the designers.
  • Due to lawsuits (or potential staged events) in the “United Airlines, Inc.” section of one of the basement levels at DIA, an infectious bio-hazard or fungal outbreak has instigated quarantined off areas of the underground, as they are now inaccessible to the airport staff and personnel. The quarantined section of the underground was confirmed by the source to be located in Concourse B’s East side lower levels.
  • The landfill located off of Tower Rd. two miles west of the Jeppesen Terminal was added onto in the early 2000′s despite the airports appeal to the District Court against the landfill in 2002, claiming it was a FAA safety hazard. The landfill has a functioning element to it but is “mocked-up” to look like a landfill hidden in plain sight.
  • There is a militarized intermediary entrance located in the “United Airlines” section of the underground. The actual door number was reveled by my source with great hesitation. The actual door code is “BE64B” unknown until now to the general public.
  • A swift door will also allow access to the intermediary entrance of the facility if you have the proper “speed-pass” clearance on a Department of Defense (DOD) level. This door was also a secret to the general public until now. The actual door number is “T-47 M” located on the level 4 exterior. Update: Airport Staff, “I just went in to T47-M… nothing goes down, no steps, no elevator”.
  • The dirt in parts of the train tunnels looks unnatural, and “if anyone steps on it they know”, said my source.
  • Gates can “lock-down” certain sections of the airport in the event of an emergency.
  • A nearly 3 mile long tunnel heads out from the intermediary entrance “BE64B“, to a full-blown Department of Defense (DOD) sanctioned militarized entrance nestled in a set of 5 buildings 120′ beneath the surface located Northeast of the Jeppesen Terminal.
  • All VIP activity typically originates under the Northwest section of “Concourse C”

The information provided by the whistleblower does indeed beg the following question. Does the DOD have any ties to areas of the airport owned and (or) operated by domestics airline carriers?

Department of Defense Ties To Domestic Airline Carriers

New information uncovered by Intellihub News investigators concludes that, yes indeed the DOD has ties to a commercial airline carrier that operates out of the Denver International Airport.

Documents requested by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Investigative Report Workshop in 2004 reveal that, “United Airlines, Inc” is involved in a DOD “Air Transportation Program” likely connected to COG. This contract would allow United Airlines to fly VIP’s, sitting Senators, Congressmen, and top elected officials including Head’s of State to-and-fro the main COG hub located on DIA grounds.

According to the Investigative Report Workshop, “The Department of Defense audits commercial air carriers it contracts with to fly DOD employees. The Workshop and PBS FRONTLINE sent a FOIA request to learn about United Airline’s maintenance procedures. Last year, we had sent the same request for another company and the audits proved to be very informative. This time, however, we received about 94 mostly blank pages.”

The Dirt Came From Somewhere

According to my source from inside, a massive pile of dirt was added to an existing landfill in the area despite the FAA’s request that it was dangerous to travelers and could pose a radar issue causing a potential disaster. This addition to that landfill was pressed hard and was supposed to take place over a 40-60 year period, but instead took place over the course of about 4 years. The pile of dirt, which is masked as a landfill in-plain-sight, now exceeds 300′ in altitude.

An excerpt from the FAA appeal reads, “In the Hazard Determination and Affirmation, the FAA found that the Tower Road landfill at its proposed height “would be in the radar line of sight and vehicles [i.e., dump trucks and graders] operating at the landfill may cause radar reflection and consequently create false targets.” JA 7.

The Determination and Affirmation themselves provide no evidentiary basis for the “false target” finding. Indeed, we can find at most only two pages in a 462-page record to support it. The FAA’s aeronautical study reports that Airways Facility radar technicians have “identified the potential for false targets. At the current elevation of 5,423′ AMSL [above mean sea level], the landfill is below the radar line-of-sight. At the new height of 5,542′ AMSL, the large dump trucks, graders, and other heavy equipment create the potential for reflecting the radar and causing false targets…. The impact in this circumstance would be an erroneous position indication for the aircraft.”


The Denver Airport (Location) is part of a Continuity of Government Program and does indeed house an underground facility.

    I live near DIA and have been there quite a few times. This airport is strange no doubt, but let me tell you the worse thing about this airport that horrifies myself and everyone I know that has gone there, and that is, the parking, the road construction, and the “speed traps”. This almost makes you tell any relatives/friends that are flying in, don’t call me, call a taxi.
    Hey, anybody here familiar with the I-225 and Parker Road area (north to I-70) in Aurora Colorado?
    A “light-rail” is being built that goes to DIA. What a fricking traffic nightmare! Bot to mention the speed traps. Speeding fines are double in construction zones!

    The story itself does make one wonder about the sources for the article, “Whistle Blower from within the DIA complex”…….
    Do they have a containment area for whistleblowers, and this one escaped?
    I understand the need for confidentiality, but unless we know whether this source is an individual from the managerial dept. or the janitorial dept., it’s all just hearsay.

    What this story doesn’t mention, are the many local legends about DIA being haunted. Yep, that’s right. There were more than one, Native American burial grounds that were reported to be destroyed during the construction of the airport.

    Put this all together with the horrible murals inside the airport, and the “demonic” horse statue you pass as you enter the airport, yep……………
    that’s the stuff legends are made of!!!!
    Stephen King would be proud of this place! WOW! What a story/movie that would be!!!!!!!!!

    Landfill? I was hoping for a sewage treatment plant. Then, when these monsters deliberately instigate World War III, we can dump millions of gallons of raw sewage into the shafts for this Deep Underground Military Installation, crushing open the entrances and drowning the rats in the manner in which they deserve.

  • Teresa Geib Bacon

    Hmm I saw this long ago on Jesse Ventura so its not exactly new

  • Gordon Klock

    This town ( Denver ), has a lot of haunted disturbed burial sites, ( Cheeseman Park only being the most well-known ),& with all the weird “hollow ground sounding spots” all about the city, make me wonder what might happen if we ever get a real sink hole…
    The underground facility at DIA is old news, it was already rumored to exist when they were still building the airport…

  • usmcmailman

    OLD STORY ! Already old news !

  • daniel lee morgan

    sounds like an ideal place to unload a bunch of U’N’ protectors. for the traitors who will be holed up there! Helping to lead us to our demise!

  • Gordon Klock

    & once the “citizens” are dead/enslaved, those same dumb cops will find themselves suddenly suffering the same fate, ( at least that is how it usually went down in history….)

    The strangest thing about this airport today, for me, is not the murals on the walls or the twisted sculptures, it’s not even the satanic layout of the buildings as referenced by some in the media. No, for me, it’s this article today which references the timeline of the so-called “landfill site”.

    Now hear me out, I’ve been performing civil engineering design and land development assignments for over 15 years now and for anyone to say that a landfill has gone from virtually brand new to over 300 feet high in just 4 years – well that immediately piques my interest.

    The first thing I did was get on to Google Streetview and see if the author is even telling the truth; does a landfill exist 2 miles west of the airport on Tower Road? Answer = yes. At least there appears to be signs, vehicle accesses, 6 foot high barbed wire fencing throughout and indeed a monsterous pile of ‘earth’.

    The first thing I noticed was how “dirt-like” the giant ‘earth’ pile appears to be. Now I don’t know about you folks but I’ve been watching the landfill in my own town grow for over 25 years and believe me garbage can still be seen at the bottom levels of the pile. The landfill in question looks perfectly like ‘dirt’ and it has perfectly formed terraces as the pile grows. I couldn’t locate a scrap of garbage waste on the sides of the pile. The second thing I noticed was the conspicuous absence of any kind of groundwater/environmental monitoring equipment ANYWHERE. The operating authority of this so-called landfill should be held to task for what appears to be a severe failure to monitor the place for any leakage, gas buildups, slope stability, etc. At the tiny landfill in my hometown by comparison there are monitoring stations on the side of the refuse heap about every 30-50 feet horizontally with a couple of rows going up. Keep in mind our landfill is nestled on two sides by rising mountain slopes. The landfill in question rises straight up out of what appears to be a relatively flat and soft-soiled landscape. All the more reason in my opinion to be monitoring all sides of such a ginormous pile of land. These concerns I have don’t even take into account that this thing has grown from 0 feet to 300 feet high in perhaps as short as 4 years (could not confirm that number on my own). Any pile of pure garbage that high would have major potential for internal and slope instability issues. But again there only exists perfectly graded terraces of generic looking dirt with no monitoring equipment at all.

    From the environmental side, any regulatory body worth a red cent would have REQUIRED substantial mitigation in the form of an elaborate diaphragm surrounding the entire site to keep hazardous leaching materials from escaping into the local waterways and going underground. In my hometown, at our little landfill, this environmental diaphragm is quite visible as it needs to capture surface runoff also AND physical monitoring equipment is also visible at consistent offsets running down the line. I can’t see anything at all on the 2 sides of this so-called landfill that are visually accessible from GoogleSV.

    And finally, at our hometown landfill we just installed chainlink fencing and barbed wire in selective places in an attempt to stave off the hungry bears in the neighborhood. By my reckoning the so-called landfill in question could see a bear coming for days (perhaps I’m wrong), so what would be the satisfying answer for the installation of thousands of linear feet of fencing, with, and here’s the kicker; barbed wire topper ‘angled in’? Designers are of course well aware that if you want to keep people from trespassing into your property you angle the barbed wire OUT.

    So why does this landfill site have the barbed wire “angled in”? Remember that thousands and thousands of linear feet were ordered, paid for and installed, this was not an accident. Who would be trying to get out of the landfill?

    For sure the strangest thing about the DIA for me is this so-called landfill…

    I am wondering about that very same thing. When whatever disaster comes they are clearly planning for and have used billions of our tax dollars to make a safe haven for themselves as well as kept us all in the dark, dirt bags that they are, someone will have be on the outside keeping the panicked population from storming these place I should think. I wonder how loyal those someone’s will be when they know they are going to share the same horrific fate as the rest of us. Perhaps they will have a change of heart and at least allow us to offer a little constructing of our own to their bunkers. After all we do want to make sure they have enough fresh air to breathe down there now don’t we? Let’s all remember that those billions these scum use in secret spending cause millions of Americans to barely get by month to month or even cause death as in the case of the VA scandal. Just to be clear here I despise them all equally. There is no partisanship in this comment as I can see both for what they really are.

  • GoneLucid

    you say this is old news.. BUT IT STILL NEEDS TO BE TOLD! WE HAVNT STOPPED IT YET

  • teller123

    I live in CO as well and have been to DIA many, many times. It is creepy and I cannot think of a single logical reason for any of the artwork in that airport. I think it is what we think it is and those horrible paintings mean what we think they mean. The horse is an eyesore. There just is not any other logical reason for any of it.

    So the landfill maybe a decoration. Some ‘high Tech hydraulic system’ maybe responsible for the growth of the pile. Time to send James Bond out there.

    Junk article. Probable disinfo. No standards. Written for conspiracy sheeple consumption. Waste of time.

  • chip griffin

    see how they fair in the end! the water will flood the plce and they will face the man just as you will. just because they believe a lie does not mean you have too. trust GOD and put your future in his hands. no i am not the church but i come as the truth, the time is here man, all of the men and women have moved away from GOD and he just as yourself would not allowed it if this place was yours. these are the rules, get in line with them or know your evil for only evil would reject the truth.
    the END is here, are you ready? it is coming whether you are ready or not! our leaders have made their choices long ago and they must do what the evil one ask of them or it is death and hell today for them.

    This whistle-blower probably risked his life to reveal (not “revel”) this information, and in appreciation of his efforts, we’ve got a grammar- and syntax-error-ridden article here that could have been written by a sixth-grader. (I used to teach sixth-graders, so I know.) Intellihub insults the intelligence of its readership by posting this stuff without bothering to have it edited first.
    And guaranteed, skeptics won’t look past all the typos, and will simply scoff at the substance of this post. This is a great way to make us “conspiracy theorists” look as stupid as they claim we are. You’ve got serious, intelligent information here–you should write it up intelligently, and then people will be more likely to take the message seriously.

    The old Half Moon Bay airport in Calif. was revamped in the second world war and reports included huge storage rooms and fuel storage built in underground.

    Ya man, and the bankers are hiding out under the Denver airport.

  • darth sloth

    If anything, I’d guess this was just another launch site for our nukes. It’d explain explain everything, fake landfill, biohazard, an effing rocket being launched from an airport. Lol, some of the other theories here are just wacky, seek help.

  • cyndyt

    A landfill close to an airport has to be covered immediately to prevent blowing trash from interfering with planes.

    The last time I used the street view on Google Earth it was able to go back in time showing the area.

  • cyndyt

    Hi Chip, you wrote. “no I am not the church”. Are you a Christian? If so, then yes, you are the church. Also, you wrote, ‘the END is here”. Would you explain what you mean by the end ? BTW that is a sincere question. I agree with you that many need to turn to God, but can you really blame unbelievers for running as far and as fast from those who claim to be followers of the Christ ? Have you ever stepped back and looked at Christians as if looking through the eyes of an unbeliever? I have and it is an ugly site full of hateful, angry, warmongering people waving the Word of God around passing judgment on anyone and everyone that dare question them, acting as if they are God. They use verses from the Bible out of context to justify their actions, they call themselves “Christians”. but rarely if ever do they quote from His words, from the NT or even speak of Him. I urge you to look through the eyes of an unbeliever and then ask yourself if you were an unbeliever would want to be a part of the same faith, know their God or be like them ? After I saw what unbelievers were seeing, plus a few questions I had over the origins of what is currently being taught in mainstream American churches, I begin several years ago, research and intense Bible study, that continues.
    I would like to share some information.
    Who Is Israel?
    Revelation and the Rothschild connection
    The Controversy of Zion
    I pray this blesses you in some way.

    i came from there to here, you must chose your path, who cares what others do. you hold the truth you believe inside your heart. i have spoken with angels, this is the end because of those who say they are his. make your stand firmly and then ask to be forgiven we all come up short that is no excuss for there actions…

    Ummmm, launching a nuclear missile from a civilian airport is as whacky as it gets WHACKJOB!! You’re the one who should be seeking help.
