Hundreds of employees and retirees celebrated Delta’s 80th anniversary yesterday at the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum. We opened a new, major exhibit titled “Delta Takes Off – From Crop Dusting to Jets.” The exhibit highlights Delta’s history from the 1920s to the Jet Age, featuring our progression from crop duster to global airline.
Three galleries hold colorful ads, rare photos and artifacts, including a 1950s flight attendant uniform, 1920s crop duster parts, and onboard meal service items. See model airplanes flying overhead. Sit in a replica of our first passenger seat: no seat belt required then–or now!
Come help us celebrate 80 years of Delta service. For information on touring the new exhibit and our historic aircraft, see the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum website.
