Delta Flight Museum // Opening 2014
By Fred Cannon, Executive Director, Delta Flight Museum
In 1941, we moved our headquarters from Monroe, Louisiana to Atlanta. It was the start of a long relationship between the Delta and the city that has proven beneficial to the local economy, our business and customers’ travel around the globe. Today with operations to 65 countries on six continents, it’s hard to imagine those early days in Atlanta when Delta flew to just 16 cities. Hangars one and two were next to the airfield and housed Delta’s aircraft maintenance operations – at the time, the largest in the southeast.
