A probable 1970's Image


Vern passed through this airport three times in 1984. Twice in the summer and once in the winter. The winter visit was disappointing in that they had a warm spell and he couldn't experience the extreme cold.  The first trip back to Seattle was cool. Vern had a 1st class seat in the nose of a 747 and watched the sun follow the horizon all the way. the sun then rose in Seattle.

The aerial photo below is newer than the photo above

In the current Google image below, it appears there has been more expansion on the east side of the airport that the west. The water runway is much longer.

Pope John II stopped here in May of 1984 where he met with President Reagan.
President Speech - Vern missed that. :)
