Launch Pad

The field elements in this year’s game are named for elements of an airport (specifically related to cargo operations rather than passenger operations, but I digress). We have the Tarmac, where airplanes are parked when loading, we have the hub which is the cargo sorting facility (I guess), we have the hangar where aircraft would go for storage or maintenance and we have the terminal.

And then we have the launch pad… It occurred to me early on that this name of this element does not really fit the theme of a cargo airport (unless we are sending our cargo into Deep Space…). But just today, I realized what it should be named…

Therefore, I humbly submit for your consideration a more theme-appropriate name for that element would have been: “Blast Fence”.
