The Maroon 5 song “Moves Like Jagger” topped the charts, “The King’s Speech” won the Academy Award for Best Picture, “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” was a national bestseller … and on October 6, Sacramento International Airport introduced its new Terminal B, a modern, 740,000 square foot facility three times the size of the 1967-era terminal it replaced. The new terminal opened under budget and three months ahead of schedule.
