Municipal Airport, Aerial View
TitleMunicipal Airport, Aerial View
DescriptionAerial view of the Municipal Airport showing runways and terminal. Missouri River travels from the north at the top of the frame and bends to the right, and the Kansas (Kaw) River meets up with the Missouri in the lower left corner. The Broadway Bridge crosses the river just south of the airport, and to the east is the ASB (Armour-Swift-Burlington) Bridge which then carried rail and automobile traffic. The Harlem neighborhood runs along the north bank of the Missouri to the east of the airport, and the city of North Kansas City, Missouri, runs along the length of the left side of the image north of Harlem. Kansas City, Kansas, can be seen to the west of the Missouri River.
