October Fund Raiser Gala ...  (1/25/08)
John Travolta, actor, pilot, aviation enthusiast, and AHM member came to Kansas City to host a benefit gala for the museum. The evening's event was called "Return to First Class", and was held in October, 2007 at the AHM hangar at the Kansas City Downtown Airport. Tables for 10 persons were available, as well as individual tickets. There was food, dancing, and music. Mr. Travolta danced with a lucky lady who was the highest bidder during the fund raising activities. All proceeds, after expenses, went to the Airline History Museum. Additional information will be posted on this site as soon as it is available.

Museum "Connie" is a movie star...  (1/25/08)
A motion picture, titled "The Aviator", opened in theaters in December, 2004.
It is the story of the life of aviation pioneer Howard Hughes. The development of the Constellation was a major event in his aviation career. Filming the movie, with our AHM Constellation, took place in October, 2003 at the San Bernardino Airport, located just east of Los Angeles. The AHM Connie, complete with the original TWA paint scheme, created the perfect "set" for the movie makers.

A story about filming our Connie's part in the movie, complete with photos, has now been written and placed elsewhere on this site. To visit the "set" of the motion picture "The Aviator"   Click Here
