    Here's some more pictures of the unusual stained-glass Blue Crab sculpture at BWI:

    It's really not very easy to find, as the airport authorities have moved it a couple of times since it once had a place of honor in a central location inside of BWI. I guess that tourists and visitors took their toll on the stained glass sculpture, as it's been repaired and hidden from most of the public. If I remember correctly, it's located up the stairs to the right of the WN ticketing, and you will see it if you walk up those stairs to get to the hourly parking garage:
