I was searching youtube and I came across this video of Atlanta in the 1980's. It was pretty interesting so I just though I would share it with you all, hope this hasn't been posted yet.
Strange to see what airports were like in the 80's, most of the planes filmed are retired from most airlines in the United States now.

If you look closely in the background of the takeoff shots you will see the new Midfield Terminal Complex, nearly complete with the opening date just over five months away.
I still fondly recall many trips to/from Atlanta in those days where I would move to the window seat at taxi-in or taxi-out hoping to catch a glimpse of the new airport taking shape. It was an amazing piece of progress in those days.
