Delta Flight Museum: Photographs Outside of the Official Venue of the 2015 Freddie Awards
A s you drive up to the security gate of the parking lot of the Delta Flight Museum, a retired Boeing 757-232 aircraft greets you as if to let you know that you have arrived — and to let you know that you are about to transported back in history in a special time machine filled with both memorabilia and memories.
Of course, it may not seem welcoming to you — depending on from which angle you view it…
…but the historic Hangar 1 and Hangar 2 which houses the Delta Flight Museum will certainly be inviting.
I know of one person who wanted to sneak out at night and cut a piece of the iron “widget” fence — which surrounds much of the world headquarters of Delta Air Lines — and take it home with her.
I asked her how in the world was she going to board it onto the airplane — even if it was operated by Delta Air Lines. I never really got an answer from her; although I heard the words overhead bin used.
Only recently was the McDonnell Douglas DC-9 aircraft — which accompanies the Boeing 757-232 aircraft near the entrance — the oldest active ship in the entire fleet of airplanes operated by Delta Air Lines. Its 40th “birthday” is next month.
As a fundraiser for the Delta Flight Museum, people purchased personalized bricks, which are laid out in an area outside of Hangar 1.
