    Former Runway 14/32 at JFK

    Hi All,
    Been awhile since I checked in on the forums here....hope all is well! Anyways I was wondering if anyone has any historical info on the old runway 14/32 at JFK (today it is a taxiway connecting the ends of 22L and 22R. Does anyone know when this short runway became a taxiway? Was it used by STOL aircraft like Pan Am's Old Dash 7s?

    Any info (or pics) would be appreciated!

    Matt

    I think there's an old thread in here somewhere where the old runway configuration was discussed. I'm talking like 5 years ago or so. I thought I had downloaded the image of it that someone posted but now I can't find it

    Could be wrong but I don't think 14/32 was still active when the Dash 7's were around, someone can correct me on that if needed

    According to Wikipedia, that runway was used by GA, STOL and other commuter flights. Not sure, but guessing it was around 2,000ft. Apparently it closed as a runway in 1990. I do recall seeing planes, like Shorts 360s using it while they were landing the big jets on 31L and R.
