As a major hub for Southwest Airlines, Baltimore/Washington International Airport offers a wide range of options for connecting flights to destinations right across the United States. The airport has been used as a set for several Hollywood films - take a walk around and see if you can recognise any bits of it from movies such as Goldfinger and The Silence of the Lambs.
