Throwback Thursday // Atlanta Municipal Airport
By: Taking Off
Even back in 1948 when this photograph was taken, Atlanta Municpal Airport (now Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport) was already the nation’s busiest airport. My, how things have changed, but some things still remain the same. Today, ATL is the world’s busiest airport with nearly 1 million TOTAL flights operated in 2012, and it has been Delta’s home base since 1941.
