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 !
