If this is Idlewild, which way are we looking? (Probably EA's terminal was open in 3/60?)

My guess would be MIA. Looks like the old fire station in the background. And is that an old "Bolo" taxiing?

Yes, that's Miami for sure. I don't think any Douglas B-18 Bolos were flying in 1960, probably it's a C-46

That's a fantastic shot, thanks for sharing. Once a household name; now it belongs to the ages.

I'm guessing one B-18 was flying in 1960-- maybe the Putnam says how long they lasted.

Looks like you're right about the fire station, with the three doors on the east side. I guess those concrete pads on either side of the taxiway beyond the DC-7B are a good clue too? (Historicaerials doesn't have any pics old enough to show them, but they're probably a holdover from the AAF-base days?)

Quoting timz (Thread starter):

Doubt is Idlewild since there would be a large body of water in the background in such a shot from the Eastern terminal.

According to their consensus, it's MIA


Just accept that some days, you're the pigeon, and other days the statue
