Meanwhile, the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum, located at Delta headquarters in Atlanta, doesn’t get much publicity, but features dozens of vintage aircraft in a former hangar, and is definitely worth a visit.

If United Airlines’ new 787 Dreamliner is the order of the day, there are several aviation museums around the country, including a recently opened TWA Museum, to catch a glimpse of aircraft and airlines of the past.

The TWA Museum opened several months ago in Kansas City, Missouri, at the site of its original headquarters.

The accompanying music may cause you to doze, but if you don’t, then the following video about the museum might rekindle some memories of the airline, and memorable annals in U.S. aviation history. A visit would probably help, too.
