AbstractPhotographs and article about the Airline History Museum, 201 N. W. Lou Holland Drive (Wheeler Airport). The main attractions of the museum are the restored planes: the Lockheed Super-G Constellation (commonly called the Connie), Martin 404, and a Douglas DC3. The musem "traces the evolution of commercial travel from the days of Amelia Earhart and open cockpits to early meal service and surprising luxuries such as genuine silver utensils." Many items for the museum were donated by former TWA employees.
