They only had the one hangar. I miss WA and their LAX hub.

Western actually did contract work for Douglas and was called upon to paint and do configuration changes on DC-10s.

Yes its quite sad to see that Delta is only a small shadow of what Western once was at LAX.

I think that this is the first thread I've seen about WA. Used to fly them weekly LAX-LAS when the fare was $13.95. Loved the Electras. Good memories.
