Here's a little-known bit of ATL history: when Atlanta's "Temporary" passenger closed in 1961, it was not demolished; it was moved across the airport where it was used by Hangar One until the early 1980s.
New page full of photos from the final months of Atlanta's "Jet Age" terminal opened in 1961 and closed in 1980.
A new page about Miami-based Gold Coast Air Taxi / Gold Coast Airways has been added to the website.
The PBA DC-3s - Where are they now? page has been revised with new photos and information on 8 of the 12 aircraft. It's been a busy couple of weeks for several of the former PBA DC-3s. Here are a few highlights:
N137PB, the only DC-3 that retains the late 1980s paint job and passenger cabin, returned to the skies on May 4, 2017. After spending over 2 years on the ramp at Thomaston, GA, N137PB was flown to Cape Cod Airfield near Barnstable, MA where it joins PBA sister-ship N35PB (now registered N61981). Thanks to Richard Hancock for these wonderful photos.
The Breitling DC-3 HB-IRJ, formerly N34PB, is in the middle of a round-the-world tour and is currently undergoing planned maintenance until May 18, 2017 in Kobe, Japan. Here it is above Mount Aso, Japan's largest active volcano, on May 2, 2017.
