"Did You Know?"

Copying the closing remark of KHON's long-time news anchor Joe Moore, here's a bit of HNL trivia:
the current Taxiway D was once Runway 14 in the days when the Honolulu Airport was also called Naval Air Station Honolulu in the 1920s and 30s. A map of the original airport layout, in the Airport Manager's office shows the old Runway 14. According to the map, the departure end of Runway 14 was never designated Runway 32, and pointed out over Ke‘ehi Lagoon.
