Idlewild's original three-runway layout-- I guess the field's not open yet, but the 6/46 date is probably wrong? They can't be two years away from opening? No quonset-hut additions to the terminal building yet.

So, LGA was once a four-runways aiport? Didn't know that...
Interesting to see the original layout at what is now JFK, which is a bit similar to LHR's original plan: three sets of parallel runways, terminals at the center of the field... And the evolution has been quite similar, apart from the fact that LHR is down to two main runways, whereas JFK still has two sets.

Nice find, thanks for sharing!
Some of the archive descriptions are a little comical. But, they probably have so many to do that they have to streamline the fact-finding. The C-121 "landing at an unidentified location, possibly Staten Island".
