Dramatic nighttime lighting highlights the unique design of the Fernandina Beach (Florida) Municipal Airport Terminal building. The design pays homage to the U.S. Navy F4U Corsair fighter plane that flew training missions from this airfield during WWII.

The “Corsair” as seen from the plane’s starboard side (note the small green light at the end of the wing). The canopy (skylight) is highlighted with a series of LED lights.

The terminal as seen from the runway side of the airfield.

A well-executed design that looks stunning at night. I’m sure this will be somewhat of an attraction here in Northeast Florida as the building will feature all types of memorabilia from the airfield’s connection to the Corsair and the training of Naval aviators during World War II.

Thanks for stopping by!
