Those who know me…..know I love many things…sports and aviation are among my passions.
Of course, it goes without saying that the Captain is one of my aviation related passions! 🙂
I worked in Aviation for many years, and during that time…. the Boeing office supported many airlines.
TWA Airlines….and then American Airlines were the primary.
TWA flew the Skies for over 75 years….I was fortunate to have been there for their 75th year celebration.
Our Boeing office, particularly my desk, became the daily destination of many of the TWA engineers.
I would take pictures and post them on my bulletin board as you can see behind Jim R. one of the engineers.
We not only supported the Airline with the many issues of repairs, etc….I was also the sounding block for girl friend, baby, and life in general issues.
The engineers brought new wives and babies to meet me and I was invited to weddings and special occasions.
I will always cherish each and every one of them.
Eventually, Boeing closed down our office and transferred me to Seattle….I still have many friends from that time period and certainly many memories.
So I explain all of that, to tell you about this wonderful museum of TWA history.
It is located in Kansas City near the Downtown Airport.
Below are a few of the pictures from the museum.
If you live in and around the Kansas City area, I hope you have taken the time to visit the TWA Museum.
I have been there many times and it has evolved into a wonderful piece of history….and you will want to go back again and again….as new exhibits are added.
TWA’s history is amazing!
OR, if you are traveling through Kansas City, please stop by the Downtown Airport and visit the museum for yourself.
….and if you live close, volunteer to help with tours, etc.
Of course, donations are always appreciated and welcomed, or if you have memorabilia from the TWA era, please contact the Director, Pamela R. Blaschum, at the address or telephone number listed.
Thank you for allowing me to go down memory lane today…and I want to say a special “hello” to all my TWA/AA friends!
You all “ROCK” !!!!!!!!!!!!
Please check out my “Featured Video” (upper right corner of my Blog) for a video tour of the museum. It is well worth your time. 🙂
