Hub Scenes From A Bygone Era

Sun Sep 10, 2006 12:15 pm

I was feeling a little nostalgic tonight and was looking through some of my old pictures and came across these.

Both pictures bring back a lot of memories. And both, despite being not *THAT* old definitely harken back to a distant and different era.

Thanks for looking.

So the first one is QQ so I'd imagine it's RNO, but I haven't a clue about the second city. Would you care to enlighten the young ones of us here?

I believe the second city is PHX.

Look at the control tower in the background. I just can't figure out where the terminal is...is that the old terminal 1?

The top picture was taken at RNO (Reno) May 1995. The second picture was taken at COS (Colorado Springs) January 1996.

Great pictures, to me they are worth so much more in capturing the true aviation atmosphere than a thousand generic "side shots" of some Boeings or Airbusses, which get routinely accepted on this website. If you find more of these pciturs in your archives, please post them here.  Smile

The second one is definately COS. WestPac was hubbed there. Also, the tower is at the north end of the field on USAF property. While the picture looks like the ground is one big concrete slab, it's actually snow covering the field.

The TWA JFK terminal was a national treasure.Land marks should not be torn down.

I have several photos of the TW hub at ORD in the early 1980s before
they moved down to STL and swallowed OZ.

As far as hubs,I look at 2 hug hubs everyday when I look out the Tower
windows at ORD.UA have a better looking terminal than AA at ORD.
Thats maybe because UA is the Chicago airline and AA only cares about
DFW.ORD just pays the bills!

Thanks for sharing. These photos carry more emotional weight because these airlines, unlike PanAm and the old TWA, were around in my age of reason. Its a sign of immense change in an industry I'm just getting into. I can't even fathom what kinds of things will happen in the next 30-40 years that will be my career.

Drerx7,

Thats great and true,but many building are now gone that were on the
historic registry.An airport or train terminal are the most common to be
torn down after they are on the "dont touch list".The former TWA terminal
is not safe.

If they even think about taking it down you New Yorkers better
start writing letters.

As others have said, its Colorado Springs, and as much as I hated Western Pacific when they were still around, I wish they were still around. It also brought back the good ole days when Southwest wasn't destroying the industry along side of fuel, when airlines had service and it was good times.

While not a hub shot, I tried posting a photo I took at DFW years ago of a Condor 744, obviously substituting for LH. It got rejected, I don't recall why. Now no one beleives I actually saw a a 744 in DE colors, and I can't even find the pic anymore. And to think it could have been preserved on a.net for posterity (and to prove I was not hallucinating).  Sad  Smile

Wow all I thank you for reminding me why it's so great to work at a big airport. I have seen plenty of days at MAN that if I had a camera with me I would have captured some pics comparable to the ones on this thread but with modern day hub airlines at MAN such as BY (I'll never refer to them as thomsonfly), FCA, XLA ,MON, WW, BD, BA, BE or MYT on those days where the rain is poring down in a certain way or snow is falling or the days where something special happens and you are there to capture the moment but albeit most times in your head like when I was at the fire station doing fire training for my current job and the first plane I cleaned G-BRIF taxis in past the fire station almost in a way welcoming me back to the airport.

But i'm sure you all have had a lot of those days yourselves as well as the bad days but the good days make them bad days seem small and insignificant to go through but although they don't seem so at the time

Looking at those old hub pics kind of make me wish I was was born ten years earlier so I could have truly appreciated those airlines (not that many of them flew to MAN anyway).

Above are the aircraft that I piloted out of KDEN(Stapleton).  

These sights literally bring tears to my eyes. They bring back the memories of growing up in Denver and finally achieving my goal of flying the orange and gold. I was blessed in being able to fly out of Stapleton for 9 great years. Now I have to deal with where I am now, IAH. I don't care for it, but I still love CO and the piece of metal I get to left seat.

Absolutely incredible pics! The last flight I remember through the old Stapleton was a TWA L-1011 from SLC and onwards to JFK. MAN, those were good times, a PEX 747 landed as were holding short of the runway (I cant remember which one, I was what...4-5 yrs old?).

Thanks guys. I saw those sights many, many times. Stapleton was an airport that never lost its, uhhh, vibe. It always had something to see when you went there. I remember my very first flight: 5 years old: 707: DEN-LAX. Good times. My son saw the days of Stapleton, but was too young to remember. He doesn't much care for the new KDEN(neither do I), but he doesn't seem to mind IAH. CO always has chose the good hub for money. Even though I'm not fond of the airline, I will admit that UA has got some good hubs...

Bring on some more old hubs pics. I like this thread.
