Airplanes aren't all that's flying around Denver International Airport. So are conspiracy theories. They've been around since DIA opened. Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura highlighted them in 2010 on a TV show called "Conspiracy Theory."
One theory says elites will have a refuge at DIA during some apocalyptic event. Another claims lizard people live in the miles of tunnels below the airport. DIA "embraces the unbelievable" this month with a series of events including tours and exhibits highlighting those theories.
Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery spoke to Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
