Aerial Pictures

This photo shows the name changed from Gardenville Airport to Buffalo Air-Park from the painting on the Quonset hangar. The Operations building is still a single story, but the Maintenance shop is constructed next to the Quonset hangar. I am dating this between 1945-1949. (10)
BAP, April 1950. The second story has been added to the Operations building and a new hangar is constructed on the old “North” hangar concrete pad. (11)

    Nice job Bill! You might want to mention the existence of the North/South runway (cross wind runway) that was in use until at least the mid 60’s. The housing developments put an end to that. 😠 You are truly doing justice.
