Trans World Airlines - 1986

The journey began with a flight from Frankfurt to New Orleans with a stop in New York JFK with a Boeing 747 from TWA. Trans World Airlines was a major American airline which operated from 1930 until 2001. Howard Hughes acquired control of TWA in 1939 and operated it until 1960. Its main transatlantic hub was the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, an architectural icon designed by Eero Saarinen, and completed in 1962, which you see in the last PiP. The 1st PiP shows Rockaway Beach approaching JFK.

Danke Dir. Habe mich entschlossen, nachdem Trump weg ist, eine Serie mit alten Dias über die USA zu machen. Da wirst Du einiges finden, wo Du auch warst!
