Good Afternoon

These two photos were taken exiting the MSP Lindbergh Terminal but not standing in the exact same area. One is 1970 photo the other in 2013. Both views are facing the end of old nwa hangar 1 / 494 / river southeast direction.

I want to say thank you very much for all of you who have purchased my 2013 nwa dvd 'The Golden Years' and any of my previous nwa dvd's.

NWA DVDs For Sale

First, I want to say thank you for all of the many responses and the good words for the nwa dvd's. All dvd's are mainly about the maintenance portion of nwa - Hangar views, tail stands, shops, a/c overhaul and mech's. If you are a former mech or related you will recall all of the nwa scene's.

I will be selling them in person at 4 events this summer:

1. Local 1833 picnic, Highland Park, St Paul, Thur, June 20, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
2. Farmington Bkfst, Farmington, MN, Tues, July 16, 8:00 am to 11:00 am
   location: From the east or west - Hwy 50 and 3rd St, downtown, at the stop light, look north behind the gas station is Celts Pub, this is where the bkfst is held
3. Lovgren Hangar Party, 290 Hotel Lane, So St Paul, 4:00 pm till late
4. Farmington Bkfst, Farmington, MN, Tue, Aug 20, 8:00 am to 11:00 am

If you cannot make any of these events, in Late August, I will send out another blanket e-mail seeking persons who would like to purchase my nwa dvd 'The Golden Years' and have it mailed to their home.

The cost is $10 for each nwa dvd bought from me in person.

The cost is $12 for each nwa dvd to be mailed to your home.

If you have allready wished to have a dvd mailed to your home, I have saved your e-mail address, but no action taken, until late August.

Thank you for your interest

This is just one of the 533 nwa still photos that are on my next nwa dvd.

Remembering where we worked -- Many interior hgr photos of hgr 1 - 7, some shops, hgr events, mechs, a/c in MSP overhaul. It covers mainly years 1960 thru 2004.

If you had purchased one of my previous nwa dvd's I made a effort to have your photo included on this dvd.

If you worked MSP from 1960 to 1995 you probably will know most of the mechs on the photos.

I will be selling / taking orders for this nwa dvd at the:

1833 Retiree's Picnic - Thur June 20 - 11:00 am till 1:00 pm at Highland Park, St Paul

Cost is $10 at the picnic

Hope to see you there - and that it does not rain, we need a break.

Chg'd Aug 1926 to Oct 1926 - Aug was a error Oct is correct....

This may have been Northwest Airways 'first' logo. Recently, I have seen this logo on two different a/c photos from the year 1926 / 1927. From October 1926 - July 1927 they carried air mail only.

05 July 1927, they added passenger service and a new / different logo was born.

My 2012 NWA DVD "NWA, The Early Years 1926-1960" this photo was not included. Research had not found the mo/day dedication date of the original WCF psgr terminal. This year I called MAC - told my story to a MAC architect - he then went to their archives - 3 hrs later he called me back with this info. The photo is included in my 2013 NWA DVD "NWA, The Golden Years."

Hangar Mural

Do you recall this photo being on the end of Hgr 1, around 1989/1990?

If you have any information about this photo, or have the actual photo, would you please reply?

I cannot absolutely verify that it was actually painted on the end of Hgr 1.

Thank You,
Jim  O.
