Boris Johnson has recruited a US mayor to boost his campaign to close Heathrow and build a new airport in Kent, writes Simon Harris.
Officials from Denver will tell the Mayor today how he managed to successfully relocate Stapleton International Airport in 1989.
Despite a law suit against the city brought by local residents incensed by aircraft noise pollution, and opposition from major airlines who claimed demand for a new airport was non-existent, they successfully relocated the airport to a new site outside the city with room for 12 runways.
The team from Denver are also expected to meet with officials from the Davies Commission, who are considering where best to locate new aviation capacity in the southeast.
Replacing a TV legend is always a tall order, but does the Mayor of London have what it takes?
In an interview for Channel 5 News, Sir Bruce Forsyth, when asked who was going to fill his shoes on Strictly Come Dancing said he'd like to see Boris Johnson have a go.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has reacted cautiously to a suggestion by the Metropolitan Police commissioner for a change in the law to allow positive discrimination in the force.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has called for a change in the law to allow the Met to recruit one ethnic minority officer for every white officer they take on to combat claims that the force is "institutionally racist".
The concept is based on the model used in Northern Ireland where a temporary change in the law allowed the newly formed Police Service of Northern Ireland to take on one Catholic for every Protestant it recruited.
Speaking on LBC radio, Mr Johnson said that while the Met needs a force that "looks like London", any move towards positive discrimination would have to be examined carefully.
ITV London today revealed Boris Johnson plans to spend an extra £2m on lobbying for a new airport in the Thames Estuary. The mayor has already spent over £3m of London taxpayer's money in an attempt to persuade government that his plan should be taken forward.

His plan is unworkable, unrealistic and unaffordable. “His plan for a new airport would wreck west London’s economy and create economic chaos for my constituents in Ealing and Hillingdon.
We do need to make sure that Heathrow works for local residents, this means no ‘mixed-mode’, no additional night flights and different flight paths to reduce noise.
These are sensible workable policies that will make a difference and maintain jobs and the local economy.”
