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.

  • Robert Boldt My dad, O.B. Boldt, an engine inspector with a perfect record, worked there from the time it opened till one year before it closed when he retired. He is gone now having passed in 2009 at the age of 93. His whole life was aviation. He lived it, breathed it, talked about it all the time. I still have some stuff from there. My point is he wasn't alone. All of those men and women worked very hard and loved the company. It was a very important part of the history of Dallas Love Field and should be refurbished and open to the public to view.

  • Dee Taylor Too beautiful a structure to be destroyed. Let's preserve something from Braniff's colorful past.

  • Jackson McQuigg Glad to see an economically viable adaptive reuse for this great example of Modernism is planned!
