Above web site doesn't have much on the dome itself, but they've got a couple links to media contacts who could probably provide some excellent current pictures of the hangar (now baggage terminal).

Tim Tyler's large geodesic dome listing

I would question your #1 ranked dome. It is a truly remarkable and dome-like structure, but I would not consider it a dome and it is not geodesic. A noteworthy structure, I would suggest it does not belong on this list.

The structure was a waterpark called Ocean Dome and associated with the Seagaia resort, in Miyazaki, Japan (on the island of Kyushu). Unfortunately, it was a money-losing venture from it's construction and, at one time, Seagaia had the distinction of being the most-endebted third sector (combined public-private financing) project in Japan. It was subsequently purchased by Ripplewood, and the resort and its excellent golf courses are now managed by Sheraton.
