I watched this video of Atlanta Hartsfield Airport in 1980 and it is cool how many "classic" jets were the norm then. Two questions I have about the video, 1. Where was the observation area that the video was shot in relation to the field nowadays and 2.) are any of the buildings in the video still there?

From Google Maps - Here is an overhead view of the north runways at Atlanta Airport today -
This image shows where each of the 6 concourses from the Old Terminal were located in relation to today's runway 26R/8L and its adjacent taxiways.

Note the two Y shaped concourses. The observation deck was on the roof at the base of the Y. It was an amazing location to watch all the Eastern, Delta, Southern, and Piedmont flights literally right below where you were standing

Here is another video focusing on United Airlines operations at the Old Terminal.
It has a lot of good shots of the Old Terminal

The video's title is "Atlanta Airport 1967-1983"
altho the Old Terminal closed September 20, 1980

Awesome videos, I remember the days when Eastern and Delta packed the gates. I wish I had a video of when I flew in on a Eastern flight from ORF enroute to MCO, it was overcast and there was two holes in the clouds where the departing traffic flew through, due to wake turbulence. I haven't seen that lately.
