While flying over DFW recently I looked out the plane's window to see if I could spot Braniff's old headquarters on the west side of the airport. I thought I saw two low-rise buildings that may have been it, sandwiched between a north-south runway and a nw-sw runway.
Is this the old complex, and if so who uses it now?
It sure didn't look like the photos of 20+ years ago, and I couldn't spot the parking lots or ponds.

The complex (or most of it) is still there, and according to the latest in-house DFW map, it is now known the Verizon-Terraces Hotel and Conference Center. The actual address is 2201 West Airfield Drive.

Not to nitpick, but to make sure no one misunderstands: Corporate Headquarters for Verizon Communications is in New York City. The DFW facility serves as headquarters for Verizon's Information Systems and Telephone business units. It is not their Corporate HQ.
