Heavy Lifters At LAX
Heavy Lifters At LAX

   It may have just been a publicity gag but the heavylifters and diggers into the ground in this 1950’s picture featured on the Flight Path Museum at Los Angeles International Airport website appears to leave the work of installing airport signage up to some women.
Deborah Flint and Agnes Huff    Well, what goes around as it is said, came around when Flight Path in late 2019 went centerstage at LAWA with a big “open house” party bash that featured Deborah Flint, (left in photo) LAWA CEO, and Agnes Huff, (right in photo) Flight Path Museum Board President in the middle of all the action.
    More than 375 friends and supporters of Flight Path Museum were part of a gala event dubbed “A Global Affaire.”
    Deborah Flint delivered the keynote address at the Flight Path 24th annual fund raiser.
    Flight Path is a wonderful celebration of not only LAX history but also as mentor to the next generation.
    As example, last year more than $17,000 in competitive scholarships were awarded to promising aviation and aerospace students.
    LAWA CEO Flint spoke of the gateway’s USD$14 billion modernization program as guests toured the facility, enjoying a champagne reception and buffet.
    Proceeds from the gala benefit the museum’s mission of preserving aviation and aerospace heritage and supporting educational programs to encourage youth to pursue careers in the industry.
    “We are most grateful to everyone, including our major supporters, who collectively helped make our gala a great success,” Agnes Huff said.
    We also owe a major debt of gratitude to the many generous individuals, businesses and organizations who supported us with tables, silent auction and raffle items.
    “Lot’s of LA glitter at Flight Path’s 24th,” Agnes Huff declared.
    But the tug at the heart was attendance at the party by some folks from The Flying Tigers Club in Los Angeles.
    For years from World War II until 1980, before being acquired by FedEx during the Stephen Wolf regime, Flying Tigers the all-cargo airline anchored its global all-cargo operations at LAX.
