Both in Northeastern United States.

BDL -- Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, Connecticut (1/2 way between Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts) http://www.airnav.com/airport/BDL

BGR -- Bangor International Airport, Bangor Maine. Often used for diversion from BOS. http://www.airnav.com/airport/BGR

If you're actually looking into using these airports, may I suggest another small but practical commercial airport, PVD -- T.F. Green State Airport, Providence, Rhode Island. http://www.airnav.com/airport/PVD

BDL = Bradley International Airport, in Windsor Locks, CT. It is growing fastly, with service with all the major domestics, including Southwest and new service from American West. They are currently in the phase of building a new garage and eventually a new terminal. The info from RednGold is great from an aviators point of view; more info can also be found at www.bradleyairport.com for that of the passenger. It has a decent perimeter road, and photography is not too tough. I have been fortunate enough to tour the control tower, and look forward to seeing the brand new Tower just built. From hosting the special olympics Citation Airlift, to being an alternate for the concorde, Bradley continues to grow and mature as the respected "2nd Largest Airport" in all of new England. I would be happy to address any specific questions.
