Book Description

This is a book about one of the greatest names in airline and air transport history. Trans World Airlines (or Transcontinental & Western Air when it was first formed), has contributed more to the technological advance of commercial aviation than any other airline, except possibly Pan American Airways, which launched two jet ages. But during the formative years, when aviation was yet young, T.W. A. was always in the vanguard of progress. The list of achievements of this great airline is a long one and Paladwr Press has tried to record and narrate most of them in the pages of this book. It is illustrated with almost 200 photographs, 30 maps and 48 precision drawings by Mike Machat, and it lists every one of the more than 1,200 individual aircraft that has proudly worn the red and white colors of T.W.A.
