I want to thank the fantastic crew of the Flight Path Learning Center for their assistance in my research. A special thanks goes to Ethel Pattison, historian at the Flight Path Museum.
After working as a flight attendant in the early 1950s, Ethel joined Los Angeles World Airports in 1956 (I will NOT mention her age).
She has a fantastic historical memory and has provided great research support during my multiple visits to the Flight Path Museum. Ethel, thanks for everything! You are a treasure!
If you love aviation and aviation history, be sure to visit this wonderful museum. It has wonderful displays on the history of LAX, and US airlines.
They also have an outstanding aviation library and the museum offers a magnificent view of LAX and operations on the airport's southern runways.
