I would like to ask about the history of the "Superbay" at KSFO. I could also imagine questions such as how an airport got its name/code (like KORD), or about the unusual layout of EDDI.

Would questions like these also be on-topic? If so, are there some requirements for them being a good fit for this site?

  • $\begingroup$ If this is on topic - and I think it is - then the questions you mentioned certainly are too $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Apr 7 '15 at 15:29
  • $\begingroup$ @Pondlife that seems less historical and more related to procedures. $\endgroup$ – fooot Apr 7 '15 at 15:33
  • $\begingroup$ It's debatable, e.g. I could argue that airport naming is also a procedural issue because there are standards etc. involved. But most questions will have multiple tags anyway, so we can easily handle multiple perspectives on one question. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Apr 7 '15 at 15:46

Personally I would say yes. We already have an tag and the topics you listed I think would nicely fit in it.
