Their JFK Terminal (which was really a hangar) was interesting, along with all those 747s on blocks they used for spare parts. Just as a piece of useless trivia, the first MTV Road Rules folks won tickets to Paris on Tower Air. I remember watching when they showed the tickets and I was thinking to myself how cheap MTV must be, as I recall there was another 90's show like Road Rules where MTV gave the winners free Tower Air Tickets. Perhaps it was Singled Out

I am no Tower Air fan by any means but the airline had a great safety record. It started operations in 1983 and up till it ceased operations around 2001 it had not one fatality, that's not a bad safety record. Although the airline didn't have PVT's, Sleepers and other plush amenities the airline served a purpose, an alternative to selected destinations at a low cost. If you want on time all the time and all the amenities then pay for it but consider there are people who can't afford such frills and need an alternative. Rest in Pieces Tower Air....
