New York City, USA!

"In April 1942, New York City began placing hydraulic fill over the marshy tidelands of Idlewild Golf Course. Initial plans were for a modest 1,000-acre airport, but by the time construction was complete Idlewild Airport had grown to five times that size. Commercial flights began in July 1948. On December 24, 1963, the airport was rededicated John F. Kennedy International Airport in memory of the nation’s 35th president. Today, JFK is the nation’s leading international gateway, with more than 80 airlines operating from its gates. "

Such a shame that this airport is closed.. Maybe they could use it for the smaller type of airplanes or an LCC airport..

schiphol EHAM/AMS

1916


Around 1930/1940


Around 1940/1950


Construction of the international airport at the new location around 1960


The finnished airport around 1970


A lot of green in the 70's


In the end of the 70's Schiphol got connected via a underground railway.


Around 1990 : Construction of the doubling of the railway connection Leiden-Schiphol-Amsterdam and the construction of the new control tower.


As we know it today.


Maybe in the near future ?


Also a replica of the old building has been build at Lelystad airport at the aviation museum.
