CHICAGO - APRIL 12: A plane departs O'Hare International Airport behind headstones and grave crosses in the 157-year-old St. Johannes Cemetery April 12, 2006 Chicago, Illinois. St. Johannes Cemetery lies directly adjacent to the current O'Hare Airport property and is the subject of much controversy. Opponents to the City of Chicago O'Hare Modernization Program's expansion of the airport are concerned with possible ramifications to the cemetery and its graves on the land that the airport needs to expand. Despite opposition to the plan, expansion at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport has begun, and is the largest expansion of any airport in the history of national aviation. The $15 billion project is expected to take upwards of seven years to complete. The airport was initially constructed in 1943 as an airplane manufacturing plant, later renamed Orchard Field Airport (thus the ORD on baggage claim tickets) and redeveloped for its first commercial flight in 1955. The airport as it is known today is named after a WWII pilot named Edward 'Butch' O'Hare, who was once awarded the Medal of Honor. (Photo by Tim Boyle)
