Landing in Connecticut

In the above photo, we see what the ground looks like as we come in for a landing over a snowy Connecticut in the area of Bradley International Airport. In January, 1942, the Army Air Base was named Bradley Field in honor of Lt. Eugene M. Bradley of Oklahoma, who died in a training drill crash.
The airfield was returned to the State of Connecticut after the war, and upon returning to civilian use, Bradley International Airport brought air travel service to the area in 1947.

There’s a lot more air traffic now, and perhaps not so coincidentally, a lot more to look at down below, too.
