It's amazing the thing you find when you go through old boxes. These photos were taken in either 1967 or 1968 (obviously during the winter) and were part of the submission for a new terminal. This is the first part with more photos to follow.

Here is a photo of an RB-57 passing between the freight and tower building on it's way to the runway.

Also a C-124 at the Autobahn end of the ramp doing an engine runup.

If you look at the aerial view of the freight terminal you will not a lack of freight handling equipment.
You can see 3 25K (463L) loaders and a flatbed trailer.
I believe the only other that we had at the time was a 40K and that was out of service most of the time.
