Save the Braniff Operations and Maintenance Base

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.

  • Michael J. Condon I began my career as an A&P mechanic here on Lemmon Ave. 1979-1982. MANY fond memories! Would be a shame to see it destroyed so soon.

  • Jim Dyer I worked for Braniff from 1959 until they went bankrupt in 1983

  • Jule Peukert Please don't let The City of Dallas McMansion this building! Bigger & new is not always better.
