Happy Birthday Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport

1969 Flight Attendants

Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is turning 45, and to celebrate the airport is throwing a big party on Saturday, June 7 complete with exhibits, games, face painting, moonwalks, music, a barbecue cook-off and a raffle with a grand prize for two airline tickets on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Find more details about the time and location of the event here, but in the meantime, here are some vintage IAH photos, including a snap from 1981 of Mickey Mouse helping to celebrate the opening of the airport’s inter-terminal train, which was built by the Walt Disney Company.
