Bob Hope Airport

Bob Hope Airport, formerly known as the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, is located in Burbank, California and to a degree, serves the Los Angeles, California metro-region. Its IATA airport code is BUR.

In the film Nothing So Strange, Bill Gates is flown into this airport on a Microsoft jet before he makes his appearance in Macarthur Park in Los Angeles. There, Gates is shot and killed in a fictional assassination.

In 2003, the authority which runs the airport voted on November 4th to change the name to Bob Hope Airport, in honor of the late comedian Bob Hope, who died earlier in the year, and had kept his personal airplane there. The new name was unveiled on December 17 on the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight in 1903, the year that Bob Hope was born.

Bob Hope Airport has one terminal.
