Construction of a new terminal (now Terminal 2) at San Francisco International Airport began #onthsiday in 1951. Designed in the International Style, the building employed an innovative, dual-level layout that separated departures from arrivals. Panoramic views of the airfield and San Francisco Bay were provided from multiple spectators’ terraces and the International Room restaurant. Have you ever flown out of Terminal 2?
