Idlewild Terminal 5 ... The Flight Wing

Home Of Flight Wing One & Flight Wing Two

     Besides our signature lighted aircraft tails and our double globe logo, there stood our avant-guard terminal at Idlewild International Airport.  


     At first, the only gate area was called Flight Wing Two.


     By the time Flight Wing One was added, the airport was renamed Kennedy International Airport.   Flight Wing One was on the left, and Flight Wing Two was on the right.   Upstairs, the Ambassador's Club was on the left, the cafe was on the right.   Upstairs facilities had no ceilings, just the roof of the terminal dome high above.   Flight Wing One contained our own U.S. Customs facility.
