Misc. NORTH AMERICAN AIRPORTS, Part 1

Listed below is the first set in a series focused on North American airports:

  1. BDA (Hamilton, Bermuda) – Wade Int’l Airport, formerly known as Bermuda Int’l Airport, is located in St. George’s parish about 7 miles northeast of Hamilton, Bermuda’s capital. It is the sole airport serving this British overseas territory located in the North Atlantic Ocean.
  2. BQK (Brunswick, Georgia) – Brunswick Golden Isles Airport, previously known as Glynco Jetport, is a county-owned public-use airport located north of the central business district of Brunswick, Georgia. Before 1975, the airport served as a base for the lighter-than-air airships known as blimps.
  3. CLE (Cleveland) – Hopkins Int’l Airport, which serves Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, is the largest and busiest airport in the state. Historically, it has also been at the forefront of several innovations that are now commonplace:
    • It was the first with an air traffic control tower.
    • It had the first two-terminal design separating arrivals from departures.
    • It was the first to be directly connected with a mass transit system.
