Frankfurt is the model for an Airport. Shame about Lufthansa being a crap airline, sorry had to say that.
Cargo City there is based on the old Rein-Main airbase used for the Berlin Airlift in 1948.

Knock in many ways has many simularities with a lot of decommisioned USAF bases, in so much as you have a proper runway and a lot of surrounding land.
