Strategically located on Lemmon Avenue, the former Braniff Operations and Maintenance Base was completed in October, 1958. Designed by famed architects William Pereira and Charles Luckman, the unique structure is a testimony to mid-century modernism. Having not invested any maintenance into the building since the last tenants hastily departed, the City of Dallas Department of Aviation is attempting to tear down a viable piece of aviation history. Eliminating this last piece of Braniff history is an affront to the hard working people that made aviation a fundamental industry at Dallas Love Field and the region. Please sign the petition to demand the City of Dallas cease demolition activity and allow existing bids to restore the building.
An absolutely beautiful structure that I would love to see renovated and opened to the general public. Braniff is also one of my favorite airlines due to their Flying Colors scheme which I wish could be resurrected as well.
I working in that building in the late 1970's, walking its halls endlessly while working for Buford "Boo" Minter and then helping to computerize check maintenance workflow. I would like at the very least to have the chance to walk fhrough the building one last time.
Braniff was the largest airline at love field. No airline was Kooler. Gucci stewerdess uniforms and wildly painted jets.
