What Do You Think Of This Picture?

Fri Oct 26, 2001 2:42 pm

Wow, I usually think these topics where people post a photo they really like is somewhat silly, but this one is rather striking. Showing us how TWA will sadly fade away, all to soon for many, including myself.

It's a pity that TWA has merged with AA.
To my knowledge,TWA is among the pioneer air carriers
in the USA,such as PanAm,and i think it's hard to its
personnel to accept a merger with a younger,but
still major and prestigious airline.

Hkgspotter, this photo isn't like any other photo- it shows the progression from TWA to AA in a very interesting way, with the transitional (and awful) livery in between the two.

I personally like posts with interesting photos a lot. Keep them coming.

Yes, it is quite sad. There will be better days for TWA.


P.S. Long live TWA
