While in DC in June for another project, I stopped at the National Air and Space Museum, one of my favorite places in the world. I could spend day after day there looking at the exhibits, just taking everything in. I guess it’s just part of my love of everything aeronautics.
One of the displays that really caught my eye this visit was the old aircrafts from the early days of passenger aviation. The display included planes from TWA, Eastern Air Lines, and United Air Lines, the only one still around today. Looking at these aircraft and their old logos was a neat experience for this trip.
Besides the simple wow factor I also looked at things as a photographer. For some reason my eye and camera zeroed in on many of the logo’s displayed throughout the museum. There is something interesting in the simplicity of the logo designs and the silhouettes of these older aircrafts. You can’t help but feel amazed at the advancements in aviation all while walking away with a feeling of nostalgia.
