An overview of Pratt & Whitney's now-closed corporate airfield in East Hartford. The company was good enough to donate land to build Rentschler Field Stadium, where the University of Connecticut Husky football team plays. The 40,000 seat stadium can be seen in the upper left. P&W's corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant remain here, visible along the bottom of the image. The picture was taken from onboard Delta MD-88 N959DL, operating as Delta Flight 920 ATL-BDL.

Great shot! I miss the days of when those runways
were active. Even a control tower and fire team were
always on duty.

How sad to see this airfield slowly being chisled away. I remember the days when you could be lucky enough to spy a 747 coming or going from here.
