The History of Trans World AirlinesThe History of Trans World Airlines

The Trans World Airways story plays out against a backdrop of intense entrepreneurship in the 1920s, fiercely competitive and deeply political 1930s and the crash that killed Notre Dame coach Knute Rockne. TWA encouraged design of and became the lead customer for airplanes like the DC-1 and DC-2, and pioneered high altitude flight with the first pressurized airliner, the Boeing 307. Wartime and dramatic corporate politics sidelined TWA’s founders as Howard Hughes assumed control. Development of the Lockheed Constellation occurred during Hughes’ tenure. Finally, learn about the end of the Hughes era and transformation of TWA to become the first US airline to operate an all-jet fleet. Barry Latter presents this fourth installment in Historic Flight Foundation’s Airline History Series. Contact [email protected] or 425-348-3200 for more information.
