Hartford Valley International Airport !

Hartford Valley International Airport !

Finaly I can present to you a real live airport ! Hartford Mayon Airport as initialy know was inaugerated in early 30th´s of the last century ! A North-South runway was created at the west of Hartford Valley town, with a small later resized terminal. Air cargo aswell was started due north !

The 1950´s so a rapid rise of air travel, the terminal wasn´t big enough to handle the new traffic so a plan was made to create a complete new terminal south east of the present and addition  of another longer runway to handle those big jets !

Initial plan consicted of a central core and some wings spreading away from it !

Later the Terminal D wing was extended to it´s present size in the 70´s !

Gate shortage in the 80´s and 90`s resulted in a extension of the  Terminal C and D wings ! With this development aswell a mini subway was created so pasenger could have a better transfer transport !

Some pictures of the airport in detail !

Here we conclude this CJ, next will be the last regular CJ of this years series of Mayon Province 2.0 ! ANNO Europe will be restarted and maybe some other series will come around, Mayon Province will return next year with a slight more green natural extension into the north east direction !

Hope you enjoyed this CJ and see you back next time !

Thank you, Yes walking by Terminal D a departing plane may blow you away at those gates next to the central boulevard, still all runway´s are at leat one mile away from the main terminal´. SimCity 4 is a imaginative world, hotels could be roadside alike "Best Western" Some highrises maybe to tall still it´s a nice CBD !

Still I only refered to it as a real airport opposite to a maxis one, surroundings not included ! One lonely standing skyscraper to the left maybe probable be obsolete, but development sometimes need these structures.Plopable offices a lot of them seem over stretched yet combining it looks fitting !

Great work *:) Don't see a lot of airports in CJs and you did a real nice job putting this massive one together - and most importantly, making the whole area look coherent.

Kudos for the airport ! It takes a brave one to grapple with that and this one is believable (except for the skyscrapers, but some airports are built close to cities (or have been engulfed by them), and sometimes they have to adjust their fly paths accordingly, so...:-)
