Jeff Bezos personally dumps a truckload of dirt on FedExs future

Amazon want to be plenty of things, the most predictable of which is its ambitions to control Americas shipping backbone. The companys efforts to bring users whatever they desire in 24 hours requires movements by land, air and sea.
Today, the company broke ground on expanding its airborne ambitions, breaking ground on a three million square-foot Prime Air airport outside Cincinnati (in Kentucky). In case the optics of three million square feet is lost on you, its essentially a parking garage for a 100 cargo jets. Amazon doesnt even have that many jets yet, but the hub is a housing for the companys grand logistics ambitions.
Per Bezos tweet, Amazon is investing $1.5 billion in this effort. The company says the hub will create 2,000 jobs.

Were investing $1.5 billion in our new air hub to get you your packages faster. Three million square feet, and its going to create 2,000 jobs. And if youre guessing that driving a front loader was fun, youre right! #amazon #prime
