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.

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

  • John Peukert Please save this significant mid 20th Century structure!

  • Bill Alson I worked for Braniff in the Reservations Center in that building from 1966 until 1978. It would be a shame to allow that piece of Dallas history, and the memory of a fine airline, be destroyed. Save it.
