Today (13 July) marks the 75th birthday of Trans World Airlines. It is the oldest existing U.S. airline and the first ever to celebrate 75 years of service.
A forthcoming book entitled "TWA: An Airline and Its Aircraft" is due out in November. It is authored by Ronald E.G. Davies, who has evidently written several other acclaimed airline histories. To reserve a copy, send $35 to Paladwr Press, 1906 Wilson Lane Suite 101, McLean, VA 22102
Excerpts from the book appear in this month's TWA Ambassador magazine, along with some fantastic pictures of famous stars who flew the airline in its heyday.
Did you know TWA was once bigger than the original Pan Am?

I think all of us are TWA fanatics. And all of us want them to survive another 75 years. I am so so proud that they have made it, and I only wish the best for them. Here comes the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
