This satellite photo was taken on Saturday, December 22, 2001. Construction at the Janet ramp is completed, and now there appears to be some construction at the ramp west of Hangar 20-23. Judging by the piles of snow in front of Hangars 9-16 these are not used at the moment. If you look closely you can see the new markings designating the south taxiway as runway 12/30. Most of the older fuel tanks south of Hangars 9-16 have been removed, and you can see the foundation for two large new tanks.
