Historic Hempstead Plains - Nassau County, Long Island

Mitchel Field - March 1998 view of the hangar line.

 This view is looking north from the old runway area. The Cradle of Aviation theater is undergoing construction.
Circa 1973 views of the Hangar line. Courtesy of Paul Martin.
You can see the Channel 21 tower that was across from Roosevelt Field. It was constructed in the late sixties soon after the

removal of the above ground natural gas tank..
This hangar would be sitting on the north end of the soccer field, if it still existed. The railroad Avenue rail line ended at the ramp.
