Legacy of NWA story in AIRLINERS (May/June) mag.

NWA fans. If any of you are interested. Goto your nearest newsstand such as 'Barnes and Noble' look for issue #117. On the cover David Neeleman's and new 'Azul' airline.

AIRLINERS Magazine MAY/JUNE 2009 issue has a PART ONE story about the legacy of Northwest Airlines 1926-1978. Very good report and old pictures of the history of Northwest Airlines. Part two story (I believe) will be in the July/August issue.

Just bought my copy of the magazine at Barnes and Noble at Mall of America after getting home from the Greasy Spoon DO. Looking forward to reading this article.

Here's my mini-tribute to NW.

I posted most of these nearly 7 years ago on this forum, but for those who missed them, here's some color magazine ads (and a few black & white) for Northwest/Northwest Orient Airlines from the 1940's and 1950's

The first shot at Truk was aimed in St. Paul

1944

The above ads are from a website where there are literally hundreds of old ads to browse. It's a project of Duke University. Here is some information from their website:

The Ad*Access Project, funded by the Duke Endowment "Library 2000" Fund, presents images and database information for over 7,000 advertisements printed in U.S. and Canadian newspapers and magazines between 1911 and 1955. Ad*Access concentrates on five main subject areas: Radio, Television, Transportation, Beauty and Hygiene, and World War II, providing a coherent view of a number of major campaigns and companies through images preserved in one particular advertising collection available at Duke University.

Once there, you can click on browse, and then narrow your search by company.

Here's the link for all 70 NW ads.
