And by working I mean exactly that:

The gigantic model of the Hamburg airport -- which cost about $5 millions to recreate -- features 40 model aircraft that land, taxi and take off, with about 90 support vehicles that drive around the tarmac. The vehicles, all which are aided by computers to avoid collisions, have complete working lights, including brakes.

You can see more videos here. A video explaining the construction is here (German with English subtitles).
