You can just imagine the Il18s and Tu104s here only a few years ago.

I like your choices Sushka

One of my favorites is the international terminal at Pulkovo Airport, St. Petersburg.

Although two new wings have been added to the central building, it is still a perfect example of 'Stalinist Gothic'

Definetly the Marine Ocean Terminal used by Delta's shuttle services at LGA. The structure was extended and modified to serve modern needs, but the main old building has awesome art deco details inside and out of flying boats, dolphins, stainless steel decorations. Still one of the finest and few extent art deco structures as to aircraft I have ever seen. Those buildings in Russia look great too, like a museum or a grand train station

Berlin Tempelhof. I like how the planes can park under the roof.

How about Shoreham in Sussex, England? Still looking good after all these years.

LGB, without a doubt. A little gem that manages to function perfectly well today.

I would also say Berlin Tempelhof.
Great old Terminal right within the city with a great history ("Luftbrücke").
Too bad it's only used for regional flights nowadays.
