However, the fact that the airport has been under construction over the years has given rise to a wide variety of conspiracy theories.

The conspirators, meanwhile, are still struggling and the Internet is teeming with stories of aliens, Illuminati, secret bunkers and reptilians.

Denver conspiracy

Built as a replacement for Stapleton Airport,near Denver in 1995, DIA is always' rumored. From the outset, Colorado residents have speculated about secret airport tunnels and horrific harbingers of death "hidden" in art around the Denver transport hub. Unfortunately, it doesn't help that airport officials are willing to feed wild ideas about Illuminati bunkers and alien connections in their own ad campaigns. “Our CEO, Kim Day, really believes in some conspiracy theories,” Heath Montgomery, DIA's senior public relations officer, told reporters in an interview with the Denver Post.

Although mainly the airportridicules his own eccentric (and sometimes sinister) history, there are a huge number of people in the world who take these nonsense seriously. But why are airport conspiracy theories so hard to combat? In fact, this hardly has much to do with the airport itself. According to a popular point of view among modern psychologists, many people believe in conspiracy theories because of their own desire to find meaning, confidence, security, or to maintain their own self-image.

There are many theories about who builtDenver airport. One of the most popular is that the airport was built by the New World Order associated with Nazism (almost like the "hydra" in the Captain America films). The theory goes so far that its followers claim that the airport runways were purposely built to resemble a swastika from above. In reality, if you look closely at the photographs of the runways, the swastika is the last thing that comes to your mind (unless, of course, you are looking for it purposefully). People have also reported "strange" signs on buildings that are believed to be associated with the New World Order as well.

Horseman of the Apocalypse

The famous Denver blue mustang.

Blue mustang, also known as Blucifer,is a nearly 10-meter high fiberglass sculpture by artist Luis Jimenez. In fact, Jimenez was inspired by the sculpture by Mesteño from the University of Oklahoma, but the sinister events surrounding the sculpture have fueled conspiracy theories for years. For example, the glowing red eyes of a mustang are often associated with the four horsemen of the apocalypse, although the artist wanted to reflect the "wild" nature of the American people. The situation about the circumstances of the death of the sculptor himself, who died two years before the completion of the work, does not help - part of the statue collapsed and damaged an artery in his leg. Since then, people have come up with all sorts of crazy theories about the fiberglass mustang.

Illuminati headquarters

“Just look what a wonderful place for our meetings,” said the Illuminati.

In addition to the fact that the airport was allegedly builtinsane Nazis, rumor has it about many unmarked buildings and underground spaces in the airport grounds. One of the main reasons this conspiracy theory is so popular is that the airport cost taxpayers a lot more than originally thought. The conspirators point out that the Illuminati money was allegedly used to complete the construction in exchange for the ability of members of this secret society to freely use the built-up area.

Rumors around the apocalypse are probablyone of the most popular conspiracy theories about the airport. Yes, there are underground tunnels at the airport, including a train that runs between lobbies and a defunct automated baggage system, according to Spanish El Pais. But the true nature of the tunnels is believed to be more sinister. The conspirators do not exclude that the tunnels contain underground bunkers (possibly built by reptilians or aliens), which will serve as a safe place for the world elite during the apocalypse.
