Video: TWA At JFK, 15 Years And An Era Ago

Tue Mar 27, 2007 2:37 pm

Cool vid with a full 7 1/2 minutes of footage around TWA's terminals and ramps in 1992. I was using TW around that time out of JFK to FCO, ATH and TLV and well remember these same scenes.

Ah yes - cramped terminals, dingy worn out cabins in aging planes, hot tempers on a sultry summer's afternoon..... But there was something about TWA and I never got quite as stressed with them as with other carriers and have some great memories of flying with them.

Thanks for sharing! Ah, the memories of being a kid spotting at MCI.  Smile TWA is surely missed.

Interesting shot of the starboard jetbridge in use on a 747 at frame 3:39.

Cheers!

Thank you so much ! It brought so many memories... TWA was the first airline I worked for, back from 1990 to 1993, before they closed my GVA station. For many years I had hopes they would make a come back to Switzerland, but then we all know what happenened...
