Work in progress…

For my At the Airport column on USA TODAY I’ve been researching moving walkways at airports.

Geeky topic, yes, but there’s technology, drama, technology death and whimsy involved in the development of these helpful airport amenities.

The column should post next week, but I wanted to share the photo above, which is from Dallas Love Field in 1958, when the first moving walkway in an airport was installed.
