I saw her last Saturday, and she looked super sharp along with her ramp neighbor.

Concerning maintenance of the fuel control on this aircraft (the L-1011), it was a two part (air and hydraulic)
unit with very close tolerances, some measured with light bands. Challenging indeed.

Respectfully and Best Wishes,

An impressive article. Glad I could make a small contribution to it. I'm proud to have an L-1011 type rating.

Congratulations for your blog and your care for the TWA uniforms.
You might be surprised that overseas people keep the TWA spirit as well. I have gathered several uniforms to remember my flights with TWA in the eighties.
The last acquisition was this Elisa Daggs' Manhattan paper dress found in the UK.

Kind regards.

Dear Guide,
I thought I would write to you so we can remind your readers about our upcoming hangar dance at the TWA Museum on April 29, 2017. It's our major fundraiser of the year and should be a great time.

P.S. You left your lunch at the museum on Thursday, so we ate it.

Just checking out the TWA Museum blog and enjoyed the article on the TWA history and uniforms. Here's a photo of me in my AA uniform with the B737-800 "tribute" plane in vintage TWA livery parked at MSP about three weeks after it first appeared on AA's system.I think that AA has about 10 of the tribute planes featuring airlines that were acquired over the years by AA.It is always exciting to former TWA employees to spot the TWA plane taxiing in!
