I've been on quite a few flights lately, and usually, the worst part is not the airplane ride itself, but everything else that goes along with it. Like, either getting dropped off with all of your luggage or parking your car in the long-term lot, or taking a taxi ride. It sure would be nice if there was a good way to get to the airport that didn't cost an arm and a leg and was fast. According to this article, it sounds like Germany has the right idea with their new maglev project. Traveling from Munich's city center to the airport, the train can reach speeds of 310 miles per hour. Shouldn't take too long, then. The ride should be pretty good too, considering that maglev is short for magnetic levitation, so the train isn't even really riding on the track at all. Wouldn't it be nice to see trains like this connecting major cities here in the States too?
