Women’s History Month

Souvenir Sunday at the Future of Flight Aviation Center

cake for Boeing

It’s Women’s History Month and on Saturday, March 15, 2014, the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour hosted an event honoring some of the women who have worked at Boeing over the years as pilots, engineers, line workers and leaders.

The day was also a celebration of the publication of a new book: Trailblazers: The Women of The Boeing Company and included a gathering of many of the women featured in the book who represent company ‘firsts.’

I’ll circle back here in a few days with some more information about some of the women featured in the book, but because this is Souvenir Sunday I wanted to share a link to the book and a snap of one of the souvenirs being sold in the Boeing store to go along with the book.

Packards at John Wayne Airport & a salute to women in aviation at the C.R. Smith Museum

From now through June 1, 2010, a collection of photographs and accessories from the classic Packard automobile will be on display in Terminal A at John Wayne Airport (JWA).   The items are on loan from Orange County’s Packard International Motor Car Club and include hood ornaments, Packard ephemera, and photos of Packards, including this 1932 Twin Six Packard Phaeton owned by actress Jean Harlow

And this month, in recognition of Women’s History Month, the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum near DFW International Airport, is hosting a photo exhibit honoring the contributions of women who have worked for American Airlines and, on Saturdays, showing a series of movies featuring women in aviation.
