Old Airport Maps

Wed May 23, 2012 8:25 am

Does anyone know of a place to view old airport maps/layouts? Such as MEM before 36R was built.

Google Earth also has a timeline function, which goes back about 20 years or so.

Historicaerials has a pic of MEM before 36R, and Google Earth has one of it under construction.

I have a few diagrams back to 1950 or so, if you want paper copies.

Although the website is gone, you can still access it through the Wayback Time Machine.

Here's the part that had the terminal maps:
