Taken from then new international terminal. The cluster of hangars in background was best spot for aviation photographers into the 1970s. Accessible and no fences. It was declared off-limits by the mid 1970s amid greatly increased airport security. But then the area had lost its appeal as less traffic passed when the east-west runway ceased to be the main runway.
