This Christmas I hunted down and bought myself a copy of John Stroud's "Airports of the World." I had seen this book in the library as an undergrad at Miami of Ohio in the late 1980's. Sure enough it was the same book, and I'm thrilled to have it in my collection now.
However....the copy I have lacks a picture that Miami University's copy has. My copy's account of Albany County Airport has a facade photo taken around when the airport opened in 1962 (I have a color postcard of the exact photo). Miami University's copy has a much better picture: an aerial photograph of ALB's terminal showing the 1979 extension, and a United 727 in 1974-94 colors. Perhaps MU's copy is a later edition? The Miami U. libraries website shows the same publication date as mine, 1980. Weird.
Does anyone's copy of Stroud's book have the aerial photo of Albany's terminal? If so, I would be very grateful if you could scan it at say 300 DPI and e-mail it to me. It was one of the things I was especially looking forward to in the book. My e-mail address is JKrug20017@aol.com. Thank you very much,
