Thought the Pittsburgh people would be interested in this. It's an ILS chart from 1977.

Yep...I can't believe that was 30 years ago. Seems like yesterday. You probably think I'm old, but I'm only in my 40's. And no, that's not old...haha

Alos Jim, can you tell me why they dont land people  on 28R after 10pm?? my guess is that all the "rich" people of sewlickey got P.O. beacuse of the noise. it makes  me sad because 28R  is the runway that goes directly over my house and i like to hear the jets.  cry also tell leveryone at PIT that i said hi a and that i love to hear them everyday.

Also on the old map, the taxiway that converts to  a runway (27). i think that  that is the neatest thing that i have ever seen, i wonder how many pilots have gone past  the runway marker. (that runway is for take-offs only)

Oh yeah. I remember that little runway. It was only used for take-offs by small aircraft in the daytime. Also, Runway 5 was closed, they only used Runway 23.

Thanks for posting those charts!  Very cool.  

My only memory of the old Pittsburgh airport was in 1983 when I was 18 years old.  A buddy of mine and myself decided last minute to take a PEOPLExpress flight to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, for spring break in February.   However, all flights were full and standby was our only option.

We arrived at Syracuse airport and were told that there were plenty of seats available... on the SYR to PIT flight.  The PIT to FLL, however, was full, full full, and our only hope was to get our name on the standby list when we arrived in PIT.  Risking a night in PIT, we decided to chance it.

When we arrived in PIT, we ran to the connecting gate down the end of one of those PIT "cul-de-sacs" and, to our dismay, spotted a large line at the desk.  So, we stood in it and ended up getting 12th and 13th on the standby list.   With a full airplane, we had no hope, until...

The person right behind us was checking in when suddenly, the PEOPLExpress reservation system crashed.  The gate agent, getting all flustered, decided that the list she had started for standby became the list to board the airplane.  We were now 12th and 13th to board the 100+ seat aircraft.  

Climbing out of PIT in a PEOPLExpress B737 (IIRC), the captain announced "we are leaving Pittsburgh where the temperature is 20 degrees.  Ft. Lauderdale is reported a temperature of 85 and sunny."  The entire cabin broke out in a loud applause.

Sorry for the boring story but your taxi diagram of the old terminal brought back that memory...   Smiley

lol, it was your  luckey day, i only flew out of the old PIT when i was 3, so i dont remember anything.

If you look at runway 28R you can see  that half   is  asphalt and half concrete, im guessing that they re-surfaced  half of it? does anyone what year they extended present  day 28C (old 28L). and  i wonder  why they took out runway 23/5

Yeah..I remember skipping school with my friends and driving to the end of 10 Left (with my all-band radio) and watching the planes take off from 28 Right. If we were lucky, the winds would be from the east and they would land on 10.

I remember the day when all the names were changed to give all the navigation points 5 letters. They took the HOOKN off of "Hookstown" and added an "I" to make STOWI and so forth.

Wind is gusting to 31 mph at my house right now. Could be an interesting day of listening tomorrow as winds are expected to reach 50 mph.

PIT..I do remember that the old 28 LEFT was 10,000 feet long in the 70's. But in the 80's, when the new construction began, the runway length was shortened (on the 10 Right side) because the tower could no longer see the end of the runway. It was then lengthened when the total project was done.
